Formerly known as Alexandria Love Your Pet Day, Paws in the Park recently combined shopping, music, dining and adorable adoptable animals into one exciting day. Best of all, proceeds were donated to the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) to benefit animals all across Alexandria. Paws in the Park was a free event open to members of the community and their leashed pets. Over 60 vendors and more than 1,000 attendees participated in the inaugural event.
