    Event raises awareness for FIDO Parks of High Point

    HIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 10, 2016 — The High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau (HPCVB) is partnering with FIDO (Friends’ Initiative for Dogs Off-Leash) Parks of High Point, to raise awareness of the efforts being made to create a privately funded dog park in High Point.
    The HPCVB and FIDO Parks of High Point will host a Halloween Costume Contest for dogs during the upcoming Prime Time on Main event, October 25, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Participants are encouraged to dress dogs in costume and bring them to the Regional Visitors Center. There will be exciting prizes awarded for different categories and home-made dog treats will be a prize for all participants. “FIDO Parks of High Point is excited to partner with the High Point CVB in bringing awareness to the community about our dog park concept,” says Jim Bronnert. FIDO Parks of High Point will be available to answer any questions and offer information on the proposed dog park.
    “With Halloween at the end of the month, this partnership made perfect sense and is a creative way to get the word out about what this organization is working hard to accomplish. Opportunities to increase the number of amenities for the community, and our pets is only moving us in the right direction,” says Nancy Bowman, director of sales and marketing with the HPCVB.
    The event will be held in the parking lot of the Regional Visitors Center. The community is invited to come and participate, enjoy refreshments and stay for the judging, taking place at 6:30 p.m.
