Mill Creek MetroParks to present MetroMutts: Yappy Hour

Mill Creek MetroParks’ Lake Glacier Boathouse will be closed to the public on Thursday, August 14 from 4 p.m. until dark for the MetroMutts Yappy Hour event. The Boathouse will reopen on Friday, August 15 at 11 a.m.

Yappy Hour is a social event for dogs and their human companions. Canines and people will be able to take a ride around Lake Glacier in the MetroParks passenger boat, then go ashore for hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. Dogs will enjoy treats and a (non-alcoholic) dog-arita, while humans can sip a glass of wine or two. Water and lemonade will also be available.

Yappy Hour will be held from 5:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. The last boat ride will leave the shore at 7:30 p.m.  Cost for MetroMutts members is $10; non-members are $15. Reservations are recommended but not required.
