Special Official Spring Home Show features and attractions include:

Enjoy the “Disc-Connected K9’s” Show …  This internationally-acclaimed professional Frisbee dog show is comprised of some of the best Frisbee Dogs on the planet, including nine different World Finalists, including 2010 AWI Disc Dog Champion “Harley” and the 2010 Skyhoundz Disc Dog World Champion “Flash”!

Routines are choreographed to music and leave even the oldest of children with a smile on their face and in their heart.
