For one day this spring, all dogs will have free rein to roam Congressional Cemetery.
The Hill East cemetery will hold its annual Day of the Dog on May 2, officials said. All leashed dogs will be able to sniff around the historic grounds at 1801 E St. SE. Dog owners usually need to pay a yearly $225 membership fee, plus $50 for each of their four-legged friends.
Vendors from Atlas Brew Works and Port City Brewing Co. will be on hand, along with a selection of food trucks. The day also will feature a 5K race and kids’ fun run, with entry costing $40 for adults and $10 for children.
People without a pet, or who want another, will be able to meet dogs and cats up for adoption.
The festivities are set to run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
