Dogs of all shapes and sizes will have free rein to wander the Congressional Cemetery this weekend — with their owners, of course.

The Hill East cemetery will hold its annual Day of the Dog event on May 7, according to cemetery officials. 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.

The festivities are set to run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Click here for full event details.
