And let's not forget seeing all the adorable Pitbulls! All dogs are welcome though so put the next Pints for Pits on your calendar! It's a great event you won't want to miss AND all the proceeds from Pints for Pits goes towards a good cause too!
How to prepare for Pints for Pits: - Bring the whole family! Kids are welcome to this family friendly event. - Get there early so you can snag one of the goodie bags! - Be sure to let your dog rest in the shaded areas and allow them to drink plenty of water. While the entertainment/drinks may vary from year to year, here's what this years event entailed! Vendor Show: Awesome products from your local pet businesses. Vendors were giving away free toys and prizes and also selling their way-too-cute dog accessories! I got a bandana for my dog immediately, I couldn't resist! A few vendors from this years event were The Waxy Dachshund, Kai & Cocoa's Threads, Dog Mama Shirt Shop, and Beer City Dog Biscuits.
Raffles: With dozens of gift baskets, prizes, and gift cards you're sure to find one, or ten, that you'll want to win! Even an amazing grand prize! Get your tickets and enter as many raffle drawings as you want, you don't need to be present to win.
The Bier Garden: New Holland brought us beers, seltzers, and ciders! They even have seasonal flavors like Ichabod. And there is a covered area with standing or seated tables right next to where you get your drinks from. Each ticket includes one drink so don't forget to grab it!
Food: A nice little variety of delicious food is available for purchase! This year they had hot dogs, brats, nachos, and even desserts. Perfect snacks for when you're on the go checking out more of the event! Live DJ: A booth with music played from this years DJ!
Games: From playing bingo to riding Ichabod the mechanical bulldog, Pints for Pits is full of fun things to keep you and your kids busy and having a blast! Your kids can even "adopt" their own dog or cat stuffed animal in the children's play area.
