In May 2002 Uniquely Bloomington! and the Humane Society of Central Illinois presented the 1st Annual Corn Dog Walk and Contest, a 2 mile walk through Downtown Bloomington. This event was part of the Keep the Bloom in Bloomington Festival. Proceeds from the event were donated to HSCI! During the walk, dogs were judged in the following categories: dog that best represents the theme, cutest dog name, best dog/owner resemblance, shortest dog, biggest dog, best dressed dog, dog with the most slobber, dog with the oddest bark, and dog with the tail that wags the most. This is a fun event that everyone will enjoy taking part in again.
