Join us for the 6th Annual bow-WOW-walk, a K-9 2.5K to support the animals and lifesaving programs of the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. The walk and festival is sure to delight both two-legged and four-legged fun-seekers alike. The walk will begin at IX Art Park and wind through Charlottesville’s historic downtown mall before returning to IX Art Park for a post-walk festival sure to WOW our doggie friends!
