10/2/2018 - 10/02/2018: Downtown's Going to the Dogs!

Mansfield Pup Crawl
Saturday, October 13

October 2, 2018 - The Mansfield Downtown Partnership invites residents and visitors to the Mansfield Pup Crawl on Saturday, October 13. Participants and their four-legged friends will meet on Betsy Paterson Square (2 Dog Lane, Storrs) at 9:30 AM for a guided walk through Downtown Storrs. This event is free and open to the public. Donations for the Friends of Mansfield Animal Shelter will be gratefully accepted.

The walk will be approximately 1.5 miles and will begin and end at Paterson Square. There will be fun and educational stops along the way, which will take participants through Downtown Storrs and into the Albert E. Moss Sanctuary, a natural preserve owned by the Town of Mansfield.

The Partnership welcomes well-behaved dogs who are comfortable being in a setting with many people and other dogs. All dogs must be leashed and up-to-date with their shots. We ask owners to be prepared to clean-up after their dog(s) as needed.

The Mansfield Pup Crawl will take place rain or shine.

Parking is available in the Downtown Storrs Parking Garage, which is free for the first two hours and $1 per hour thereafter, with a daily maximum charge of $8.

The Mansfield Pup Crawl is a part of The Last Green Valley’s Walktober.
