The regular season at Star City Shores also ends at 6 p.m. Sunday, but the pool will host one more public event that night – Dog Splash is set for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 per dog and will go on sale at 6 p.m. at the front gates. A limited number of tickets will be sold. Each dog may be accompanied by up to two adults and one child at least 8 years of age.
This year’s Dog Splash features an area for small dogs (measuring 15 inches from the shoulder and less) and retrieval activities in the lap lanes. When the dogs are not in the water, they must be on a leash. Plastic bags will be provided for clean up. Dog splash is sponsored by the Lincoln Parks Foundations and the Greater Lincoln Obedience Club.
