Heroes and Hounds Festival and Canine Competition
January 5 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
We are excited to be partnering with the Holidays 4 Heroes Foundation to bring back our 2nd Annual Florida Gulf Coast K-9 Competition as part of our Hounds and Heroes Charity Event!
Special thanks to our key sponsors:
Shoot Center Cape Coral
Come watch K-9 teams from across the state compete in a Handler/K-9 obstacle course and Hardest Hitting/Fastest K-9 event! Prizes go to the top 3 in each division.
This year the majority of the proceeds collected from the event will go to the Holidays 4 Heroes charity based right here in Cape Coral. Holidays 4 Heroes is dedicated to serving our soldiers deployed overseas by sending them care packages during the holidays while they are unable to be with their loved ones.
The event is free to the public! We only ask that all attendees donate something to support any one of the amazing local charities that will be present at the event. Some of the organizations who have already signed up to return this year are:
-Holidays 4 Heroes
-The Cape Coral Animal Shelter
-Blue Line Bears
-Peace River Search and Rescue
-and many more vendors to come see!
This will be a family fun event featuring bounce houses for the children, a K-9 meet and greet with the Cape Coral Police Department K-9’s, SWAT and Fire Truck displays, and a full food truck rally to fill you up! There will also be a vendor expo on site for all our great supporters.
The event will be held at Island Coast High School, 2125 De Navarro Pkwy, Cape Coral, FL. On Saturday January 5, 2019, from 10am-6pm. Come support your favorite K-9’s and their handlers from local agencies and a few select K-9 clubs!
