Benefit for the Carter County Animal Shelter
The Friends of the ECCAS in partnership with the Tri-Cities Hillbilly Parrot Head Club are thrilled to announce the 4″ installment of concerts to benefit the Elizabethton /Carter County Animal Shelter. Parrots and Tails IV will be at the Elizabethton Covered Bridge Park on Saturday, September 29th with entertainment at the park beginning at 11:00 and continuing on until 7:00 pm and features 8 different fantastic musical acts and a wide assortment of food and fun things to eat and do for the day. The festivities begin with TAILS ON THE TWEETSIE, a 2K dog walk on the Tweetsie Trail starting at the Eliz Depot across from Taco Bell. Registration is at 8:00am and the walk starts at 9:00. With a $15.00 donation all walkers will receive a day pass for the main event, automatic entry in the MUTTaritaville contest and a FREE commemorative T-Shirt of choice to the first 25 entries.
This is a pet and family friendly event and guarantees an action-packed fun filled day for all ages. This year they have added a puppy parade with a MUTTaritaville contest sponsored by the Parrot Heads at 11:30 with 4 trophy winning categories: Best Dressed, Best Owner Look Alike, Best Wiggle Butt and Outstanding Dog Tal- ent. Area churches and Friends of the shelter have donated 10 delicious homemade cakes for each of the 10 cake walks throughout the day. Come hungry with choices like Jiggy Rays made to order pizzas to hot dogs, nachos, ice cream, funnel cakes, shaved ice, ice cold beer and soft drinks there’s plenty of choices to please the palate. This is the primary fundraising event for our local animal shelter and all donations are tax deductible.
