Fort Wayne Pit Bull Coalition announced their “Coming Out” event to be held on May 20th, 2012 at Freimann Park, downtown Fort Wayne. “Pits In the Park” will include multiple shelters, rescues, and local businesses as vendors, live music throughout the event, a “kissing booth” for attendees to make a donation for a loving pit bull “kiss”, and a “Pit Bull Parade” open for everyone to participate.
“Pits in the Park” will run from 12:00pm to 6:00pm on May 20th, 2012. The Pit Bull Parade is at 2pm and will be a route around the Freimann Park block.
People are encouraged to sign up to be a “Pit Bull Pal” for a donation of $50. “Pit Bull Pals” will receive a special t-shirt, picture, and will lead the Pit Bull Parade. “Pit Bull Pal” registration has been extended to May 9th, 2012. You can visit www.fwpbc.org to register online.
The music line-up consists of John Shipe, Sunny Taylor, Ramon Volz, The Purse Snatchers, and Fred Rothert.
"Bringing the community together to celebrate a breed of dog that is often times mis-judged is important, but even more so, educating the public and pit bull type dog owners on proper ownership is paramount to promoting a community that is safe for pit bull type dogs and people," states Stephanie DeBolt, Fort Wayne Pit Bull Coalition Board President.
