SUPs & PUPs at Elk Lake Saturday, July 3

SUP race with dog, dog swimming contest, beer & entertainment benefits Humane Society of Central Oregon

The SUPs & PUPs event on Saturday, July 3rd, features the best of Central Oregon: Pups, Stand-Up Paddle boards, Craft Beer & beautiful Elk Lake. Help animals in need by drinking beer and enjoying a barbecue in a breathtaking setting at Elk Lake Resort (60000 Century Dr, Bend, OR 97701). Active folks can hop on a stand-up paddleboard with their pup and compete to be top dog. Dogs who love to swim can go paw-to-paw in a swimming contest. Unique to this event is a SUP competition with your dog, and a dog swimming contest. Free entertainment includes a not to be missed performance by J.D. Platts’s K9 Kings Entertainment and music by Michalis Patterson. This incredible event benefits the 3,000 animals annually cared for at the Humane Society of Central Oregon.
