For dogs and their owners, there will be paw printing, dunking for doggie treats, a "Dogs Can Dance" demonstration showcasing dogs that have been taught to dance with their owners, a dog/owner look-a-like contest, and a musical "SIT" contest similar to musical chairs. Diablo Magazine, one of the sponsors of the event, will be taking photos of owners with their pets for a $10 donation.
"The Rose Garden is a labor of love that we have been working on for more than 12 years," said Brad Blake of Blake Hunt Ventures, partners with the Bertolero Trust and the Castle Companies in the venture.
The mixed-use project is the largest retail development to be added to the downtown area in the last quarter century.
The Rose Garden offers an eclectic mix of specialty retailers and restaurants to appeal to everyone. It is anchored by the two-acre Navlet's Garden Center and is near the Iron Horse Trail.
