Gablestage Announces the “Dog Bone Giveaway” Celebrating International Dog Day

GableStage celebrates International Dog Day by organizing a “Dog Bone Giveaway.” The event will take place on Thursday, August 26, outside the theatre, located at the historic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m.

GableStage invites neighbors, hotel guests and dog walkers to bring their furry friends to the theatre, get a theatrical picture, have fun and receive a dog bone. Sponsored by the local Bubba Rose Biscuit shop, a dog treat bakery, the dog bones for this event are made with locally sourced and fresh ingredients without preservatives.

The theatre company offers this special event to celebrate the more than 340,000 furry family members in Miami-Dade County – the Miami Downtown Development Agency estimates just under 40% of households own at least one pet, and dogs account for 77% in Miami-Dade County.

Admission to the”Dog Bone Giveaway” event is free and open to the public. Canine companions must attend on a leash. All activities will be outside and socially distanced.
