Pettisville Park holding 5K events

Saturday June 22, the Pettisville Park will host a 5K Run, Kid’s Fun Run and 5K Walk on Saturday, June 22.

The 5K event has also become dog-friendly. All participating dogs must be well-behaved and non-aggressive with people and other dogs. All dogs must be leashed and current on all vaccines.
