Pack the family up, including your canine friends, and join the Essex Shipbuilding Museum for Salty Dog Day. The day will be filled with things to do for adults, children, and dogs all in celebration of the long history between the maritime trades and dogs. The day will kick off with the Newfoundland Club of New ...England demonstrating a water rescue, and will then move on to the Salty Dog Costume Parade. Dress your dog up in its best nautical costume and join the fun. The rest of the day will be filled with lots to do: take a tour of the shipyard from a dog’s eye view; have your face painted; learn what your dog is really saying; make a button with a picture of your dog; see if your dog is sea worthy; and after watching an agility demonstration, see how well your dog can do. There will be live music by Janice Fullman and Will Hunt, food from the Salty Dog Galley, and much more. Admission: $3/person (well-behaved, leashed salty dogs – free).
