August 21, 2018 (Las Colinas, TX) – Water Street, a pedestrian-friendly mixed-use community with 60,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, green space and views of Lake Carolyn, is “unleashing” a day of entertainment and activities for you and your furbaby with Pawsome Fun at Water Street.

Come join the pack Saturday, September 8, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 5270 N. O’Connor Blvd.

The paw-ty kicks-off at 11 and offers four opportunities for puppy yoga hosted by Water Street retailers We Yogis and Homegrown Hounds, a nonprofit doggie deli and bakery benefiting local rescues. Participants can sign up for the hourly 30-minute classes at The $15 donation for the class will benefit DFW rescue organizations. Those not able to attend yoga can meet dogs and puppies available for adoption throughout the day during Water Street’s Strut Your Mutt pooch parades.

America’s Got Talent alums Shannon Kiley and her Doberman Reckon, along with several of their talented canine buddies, will bring an amazing, interactive (and silly!) dog trick show to the main lawn at 11:45, 12:45 and 1:45.
