All News Community Events Family Pet Corner Stockbridge

The Pink Pooch Festival and Survivor Walk is returning for their 10th Annual Celebration in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. The Pink Pooch Festival and Survivor Walk will take place Sunday, October 10 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. at Richardson Dog Park, 3779 Union Church Road, Stockbridge, GA 30281. The 10-year celebration will feature a free festival with music, food trucks, raffles, pet show, pet contests, mobile health screenings and more.

“Rockdale County is in full support of the Pink Pooch Festival and Survivor Walk. We have been the home of this celebration since its inception as a parade in Olde Town,” Chairman Oz Nesbitt, Sr. said. “We are so happy to see how this organization and event has grown to help further support breast cancer awareness and breast cancer survivors in our community.”

With breast cancer affecting hundreds of thousands of women and, in rare cases, men, the Pink Pooch Festival is a community event that unites pets and people to bring awareness to breast cancer in Rockdale County. The organization helps to raise funds supporting families in need, families affected by breast cancer, and community children’s organizations.

“We are excited to partner with Rockdale County for yet another year,” Tara Nestich, Pink Pooch Festival Organizer, said. “Breast cancer is a serious subject, but we want to bring awareness in a way our community and survivors can enjoy along with our beloved pooches. Everything earned from our festival is used to support local causes and families.”

The Pink Pooch Festival and Survivor Walk is free and open to the public. All CDC guidelines for outdoor gatherings will be observed. For more information, email pinkpoochparade@gmail.com or call 770-712-7653.
