Oktoberfest for the dogs 

WAG hosts Volksmarch around Lost Lake

Man’s best friend could also become your drinking buddy this Oktoberfest, as WAG hosts its inaugural Volksmarch this Saturday, Oct. 11.

A Volksmarch is part of Oktoberfest celebrations in Europe, where it is a walk for fitness, friendship and nature.

To participate, drop by the WAG shelter – in the dayskier parking lot – any time between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday to register in the Volksmarch. Walkers can leave at any time but Miss Oktoberfest will be taking a stroll with a WAG dog at 9:45 a.m.

Participation is by donation, and the first 50 people to sign up will receive a commemorative Whistler Oktoberfest beer tasting glass. In addition, there will be best costume prizes for the top two-legged and four-legged walkers in the Oktoberfest theme.

Bring your dog, or borrow a friend’s dog or a WAG dog, and come out for the stroll, which goes around Lost Lake and back to the Upper Village at Blackcomb, where WAG will feature a mini-market of animal related and logo merchandise at the Farmers’ Market. There will also be a raffle for a Whistler-Blackcomb season’s pass. Raffle tickets are $20 for the prize that gives back all season long.

If you have any questions, contact the WAG shelter at 604-905-7750.
