Barks in the Bottoms this Back-to-School Weekend August 2-4
Leashed Dogs Welcome Plus Food Truck Wine & Dine & Red Moon Tag Sales
By: West Bottoms Historic Entertainment District
Doggone it, school is just around the corner but everyone can still have a tail-wagging good time on the hunt for back-to-school locker and dorm room decor. Families looking to add a best friend to their pack may adopt from Missouri Pit Bull Rescue. The West Bottoms' Dusted Attic Flea Market will be hosting the hounds that need a home. Visiting pups and pooches will have access to treats and water throughout the district as their owners may enjoy beverages of all types and the featured August's cocktail a Fuzzy Paw.
The West Bottoms Entertainment District spokesperson, Amber Arnett-Bequeaith, reported the area continues to be dog-friendly year-round and adds some fun with special store sales. Visitors can savor the eclectic mix of foods, entertainment, and shopping with their pet.
Festival of the Full Moon is a celebration each First Friday weekend with a highlight of the month's moon. August is a Red Moon due to the red haze that can be seen gazing at the moon and the special sales highlighted by the red moon tags.
Festival of the Full Moon will have a new theme each month. Upcoming events include:
September's "Booze in the Bottoms," October's "Boo in the Bottoms," November's "Blessings in the Bottoms," and December's "Balls in the Bottoms". Each will have music, entertainment, food specialties, and cocktails that fit the theme.
