The event, which will be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Midway Park Pool, 3181 Midway Road, Decatur, includes a swimsuit photo contest. Photos may be submitted now until Sept. 5 via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag, #DeKalbPawlooza19. Prizes will be awarded to first-, second- and third-place winners.
In addition to the swimsuit contest, this year’s event will include a dog swim, pet-friendly vendors, music and a raffle.
