The two-day event will feature wiener dog races, a miniature horse show, a pet fashion show and much more.

There will also be fun activities for kids, including balloon animals and a bouncy castle.

The Pet Expo runs 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday (May 28) and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Pets, however, cannot attend the event.
