The RSPCA ACT have been announced as a Floriade 2014 charity partner.
The animal welfare organisation, alongside another local charity which will be announced closer to the event, will enhance Floriade’s festival atmosphere and raise awareness of their important causes with unique experiences and an exciting one-off event.
While animals are not usually permitted to enter Floriade due to a risk of damaging the event’s flower beds, these rules will be relaxed for one day only to make way for a Dogs Day Out at Floriade on Tuesday 7 October.
This exciting addition to the 2014 program will enable visitors to bring their four-legged canine friends to Floriade for the first time since the introduction of fencing in 1999.
Dogs Day Out at Floriade is only possible with the help of additional volunteers and pet owners will be encouraged to donate to RSPCA ACT on the day.
Floriade – Australia’s annual celebration of spring – returns to Commonwealth Park for its 27 Saturday, 13 September until Sunday, 12 October. The national award-winning event’s stunning garden beds, horticultural workshops, engaging demonstrations and children’s entertainment will all be inspired by the 2014 theme, Passion.
