Step Right Up, Come One, Come All! The LOOP Raises the WOOF at the Third Annual Fur the Love Pet Fest on Feb. 26

By February 1, 2023No Comments

The Third Annual Fur the Love Pet Fest will return to Fort Lauderdale Beach on Sunday, Feb. 26. Event organizers will take the much-anticipated annual event to new heights, literally, as the 2023 edition sets its sights within The LOOP District on the rooftop of the Las Olas Beach Garage.

The celebration of Fort Lauderdale’s love for their furry companions is once again hosted by the dynamic mom and pup duo behind the award-winning Instagram @TourwithTeddy and blog “Living A Fairytail.” Profits from the event will benefit upcoming pet-friendly experiences at The LOOP in 2023, including the popular free Dog Days of Summer Movie Series and December’s HOWLiday Party.

Coinciding with National Love Your Pet Day, FTL Pet Fest’s Circus theme brings the Big Top to the Rooftop for the ulti-mutt Sunday Funday experience, complete with scenic views, circus entertainers, local pet and people vendors, games and contests, and surprises at every turn. Guests are encouraged to dress in theme and stop by the PetWell Clinic station to pick up their nametag with their circus name.

No Sunday Funday circus brunch is complete without signature fare and Fur the Love Pet fest does not disappoint. Humans can indulge in classic circus bites catered by Circus Eats, craft their own cocktail at the make-your-own Bloody Mary and Mimosa stations hosted by Potions in Motion, and sip themselves bright-eyed at the Coffee Vibes Miami coffee bar. Pups can enjoy a Puppcino Station provided by Brutus Broth.

Welcoming locals and visitors of all ages, attendees can capture Instagramable moments at unique, interactive themed vignettes and activities, including W Fort Lauderdale’s Under the Big Top Living Room Lounge, The Pretty Nomad Dressing Room, Yum Pup’s “Pup Right Up” Concession Stand, the Doggizen Balloon Dog Wall and the Pawzitive Dog Training Agility Course.
