VIRGINIA CITY – Just as Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny formed a winning box office team in the movie “Space Jam,” the competition will be hot and hilarious for Pet Jam on the Comstock this weekend. A Pet Jamboree has been added to the annual Virginia City Pet Parade.
The Pet Jam will be held today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Silverland Arena, directly behind the Silverland Inn & Suites, the same area used for the annual Virginia City Camel Races.
Pet Jam events will include a 4-H exotic rabbit show, equestrian demonstrations, burro coon jumping, flyball, toss ‘n’ fetch, sheep instinct testing and “Games for Your Dog” conducted by the 4-H Guide Club.
“Because there will be no Nevada State Fair this year, we’ve included the annual Weiner Dog Races along with a new class for terriers,” said event organizer Tom Nordness.
“It will be a fundraiser for rural Boy Scout troops,” he added.
Vendor booths at the event are still available.
Signups and additional information for the parade may be obtained by contacting Karen Woodmansee at 847-4768 or email@example.com.
