The Union! The Confederacy! The Greyhounds?!

Once again the town of Gettysburg will be going to the dogs. This is the 5th annual Greyhounds Invade Gettysburg Weekend. A weekend dedicated to celebrating the adoption of retired racing greyhounds. Greyhounds and their people from all over the eastern seaboard are scheduled to take part in what has become a springtime ritual in south central Pennsylvania. The weekend is an opportunity for adopters of retired racing greyhounds to meet and celebrate a new leash on life for these former canine athletes.

 

The weekend will consist of a walk on the battlefield, shared meals, a special Hogs & Dogs Meet & Greet at Battlefield Harley-Davidson and a scary Candlelight Ghost Walk through Gettysburg. Plus, Nittany Greyhounds will be sponsoring an Ice Cream Social on Saturday!  There will be a special Dog Flea Market at Ying Lings Auction Center featuring dog related items for sale.
