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.
