No Pets Allowed

We have had several inquiries regarding dogs visiting the Frolics. We are sorry but because of the large number of people attending the Frolics, we do not allow dogs for their safety & well-being. Please keep your pets at home while you visit the Frolics. Even dogs with the gentlest dispositions can become stressed in large crowds. And being that near to fireworks is unhealthy for pets. Thank you for your understanding!
