Tiny Dog Festival
Time Out says
Enter your tiny floof in a competition to find Melbourne's itsiest, bitsiest dog
Do you have a very smol pupper (under 10kg)? Food truck park Welcome to Thornbury wants you and your tiny friend to come down on July 28 for a festival that celebrates that great things do indeed come in small packages.
The Tiny Dog Festival does what it says on the tin – recognising the smallest adult dogs (sorry, puppies not allowed) in Melbourne. There will be competitions to find Melbourne's tiniest dog and Melbourne's best-dressed tiny dog. There will also be a race for tiny dogs, and if it's anything like Port Fairy's Dachshund Dash, hilarity is sure to ensue.
There will also be market stalls selling everything from doggie snacks to tiny bowties. There are also bone and beer specials at the bar, to keep everyone's tail wagging.
