Humans can cool down at beaches and waterparks, but how does man’s best friend beat the heat?
On Sunday, Sept. 7, dogs will have free rein at Whirlin’ Waters for the sixth annual Dog Day Afternoon.
On that special day, Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark at North Charleston Wannamaker County Park will be open to canines and their owners from noon to 5 p.m.
Dogs can splash around the 27,000-square-foot Big Kahuna wave pool and the Rollin’ River lazy river. The refreshing Otter Bay kiddie pool area, recommended for smaller pooches, will also be open for frolicking.
Dog Day Afternoon takes place on the final day that Whirlin’ Waters is open for the season. The waterpark closes for swimming on Sept. 2.
To maximize canine fun, owners will be allowed in the water at Dog Day Afternoon to accompany their pet. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at park concession stands to cool down the humans.
Also on site at Dog Day Afternoon will be dog-related vendors as well as several nonprofit rescue groups, so pet owners are encouraged to stop by to support these great organizations.
Dogs must be up to date on all necessary vaccinations to enter the event. Admission to Dog Day Afternoon is $15 per dog. Charleston County residents may purchase advance tickets for $12 per dog.
All tickets purchased on site will be $15. Owners are free with their pets.
Spaces are limited, so sign up today. While in the park and for the safety of all guests, owners are encouraged to keep their dogs close and maintain control at all times.
