Shaw this weekend is set to host a winter wonderland, complete with mountain scenery and huskies available for petting and hugging.
The free “Hug-a-Puppy” event is scheduled for Saturday at The Shay. Two teams of competitive sled dogs are slated to visit 8th Street and Florida Avenue NW from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. as part of the festivities.
In addition to the huskies, the event will include opportunities for photos in front of a mountain backdrop with wintry props.
“Whether you’ve made it to the slopes this year or not, here is your last chance before spring comes for some winter fun without leaving the city,” according to a Facebook post from the The JBG Companies’ DCITY, which is putting on the event.
