Yes, not Oktoberfest but Dogtoberfest is going to take place this Sunday, 9th October in Lawrence, Kansas (USA). The event is aimed to benefit the homeless people and pets.
Dogtoberfest is a free, public event honouring the Lawrence community and their canine companions. As a family event, with their favorable dog as the main focus, kids and adults alike will be attending Dogtoberfest 2011 to enjoy a day together in a peaceful, downtown park. Dogtoberfest 2011 benefits the homeless in the community, both people and pets. Contributions from the event will benefit the pets at the Lawrence Humane Society and the Lawrence Community Shelter's Good Dog.
In 2010, Dogtoberfest 2010 was able to raise $2,000- donating $1,000 to each, the Lawrence Humane Society and Lawrence Community Shelter.
