Main Street Delaware will celebrate the dog days of summer with a new pet walk during its Sept. 7 First Friday event.

The pet walk will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 7, stepping off from the organization's new office at 20 E. Winter St.

Ticket-holders will receive special "doggy bags" and maps of merchants offering pet treats to fill them.

The First Friday celebration also will feature pet-related booths and information, as well as a free children's craft project, music and family fun.

Tickets sales will be limited to 100.

All pets must have tickets to receive treats, but they are invited to bring as many humans as they wish, organizers said.

When they visit participating merchants, the pets will compete for additional prizes, such as "cutest pet."

Tickets are $10 per pet and are available at mainstreetdelaware.com.
