Next weekend, Christmas will come early for canine lovers and their beloved furry friends, as Cuckoo Callay hosts their hotly anticipated Dog Day Afternoon.
The cafe will transform its outdoor space into hound heaven where puppacinos will be served alongside canine-friendly treats, toys-a-plenty and even a doggy day spa to tend to the needs of pampered pooches.
Bubbles by Laurent Perrier and Pizzini will be served to celebrate as the crowd gears up for the main attraction – the Doggy Dress Up Parade.
In support of the RSPCA, the parade will see 15 dogs (and owners) battle it out in their kookiest costumes to become Newtown’s next top dog. It’s going to be next-level cuteness! Up to $1500 worth of prizes are up for grabs thanks to Cuckoo and the festival’s proud partners, Pet Circle, Paws of Fun & Laurent-Perrier.
A number of prominent, self-confessed dog lovers have put their hand up to judge the competition, including Tim Dormer, Member for Newtown Jenny Leong, and Tiffany Farrington, while comedian Scotty Dettrick will act as MC.
When: November 14-15
Where: Cuckoo Callay, Newtown Railway station, 324A King St, Newtown, Sydney.
