For those thinking of bringing their furry friends, dogs are allowed, but they must be leashed, hydrated, and cleaned up after.

A portion of the proceeds also goes to benefit HOOAH, a 100% Volunteer National Veteran Nonprofit. Founded in 2011, Helping Out Our America Heroes supports all branches of the military so you know this event goes towards helping a charitable cause.
