The Harbor Town Dog is letting the dogs loose during this year's show and, for the first time EVER, opening up the competition to Beautiful Hounds throughout the MidSouth.

The 10th annual event is set for Sunday, October 28th, 12 p.m. in Harbor Town's Nursery Park and, as always, promises loads of fun and laughs.
As in years past, this year's event benefits the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County.
There are updated, new and original competitions including: most obedient, least obedient, most glamorous, most mysterious heritage, original Costume, best float" and best vocal performance.
