Before the Dog Days event, ‘Paws in Stores’ is back for a second year with a Star Wars theme, ‘May 4th Be Woof You’. Register on Eventbrite for a free downtown scavenger hunt that will take participants and their four-legged family members into downtown New Canaan stores. Paws in Stores participants will be looking for hidden Star Wars characters. Once completed, participants will be eligible to win a Pet Pantry goody bag and more. And, the ‘Tails on the Trails’ scavenger hunt will happen at the Dog Days event. Anyone interested can pick up a trail map from the Rock Paper Scissors Custom Events table at the event and walk the self-guided trail at their own pace. Additional information can be found on the scavenger hunt registration pages.

“We have a great time organizing these free events for the community,” said Adam Jacobson, Executive Vice President of Pet Pantry Warehouse. He continued, “These events create a space for the community to connect and enjoy our incredible outdoor areas. Our signature events are mainly created to give back to our local non-profits but also to build and strengthen the communities we serve”. Other events include Fairfield Dog Days on June 23rd; Puttin’ on the Dog on September 22nd; Fairfield Harvest Market on October 19th; and Howl & Prowl on October 27th.
