In May 2003 Uniquely Bloomington! and the Humane Society of Central Illinois presented the 2nd 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! Awards were presented for dogs in various categories including "Pet - Owner look alike contest" and "Dog that best represents the theme". This is a fun event that everyone enjoys taking part in again.

Midway through the walk, many of the dogs needed a water break. This participant laid down to drink an entire bowl.
The Corn Dog Walk event benefited from a great day. The weather was perfect for a stroll through town.
