It will be a K-9's paradise this Saturday downtown

It will be a K-9's paradise this Saturday downtown

Congestion downtown may be a little more ruff than usual this weekend.

The Rochester Downtown Alliance will host its annual Dogs Downtown event in peace Plaza from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m on Saturday.

The organization invites you to dress up your dog and snap a shot in the Dogs Downtown photo booth. There will also be an obstacle course, a booth from Doberman Rescue Minnesota, and a Doggie Trail Mix Bar.

If you make it downtown Saturday with a furry friend, the RDA has put together a list of dog-friendly patios within walking distance of the event:

  • Saluté Wine Bar & More

  • Martini’s at The Kahler Grand

  • The Tap House (decks excluded)

  • Chester’s Kitchen & Bar

  • The Loop Rochester

  • Grand Rounds Brewing Company & Restaurant

  • Half Barrel Bar & Kitchen
