Show Us Your Paws Parade, Ventnor PorchFest & More- Weekend Happenings
There are only a couple times a year that you can walk your dog on the Ocean City Boardwalk and one of them is this Saturday, in a benefit for the Humane Society of Ocean City.
Join me and Lite Rock and dog lovers from across South Jersey Saturday for the Show Us Your Paws Parade and help out my friends a the Humane Society of Ocean City.
It’s my pleasure to be the MC for Saturday’s second annual Show Us Your Paws Parade!
