Events for the week of 05/20/2012
Music in the Valle
Date: 5/25 - 5/25   click here for website

The "Music in the Valle" Concert Series starts will begin Friday, May 25, and continue through Friday, Aug. 31. All concerts begin at 7 p.m. and admission is free, but a $5 donation per person to the park is recommended.

Music in the Valle has become one of the most popular weekly summer concert series in the High Country. In Gandy's three-year tenure as park director, she has watched average attendance grow from between 50 and 100 people to anywhere from 300 to 500 people on a Friday night.

Gandy said she believes the growth in popularity is due to the fact that the concerts provide free and family-friendly entertainment

Dog Portraits in the Park

Say cheese. Or eat cheese. And then bark.

In conjunction with Charleston Forge, Tara Michelle Photography and the Wataugas Dog Park, the Watauga Humane Society presents “Dog Portraits in the Park.”

These professionally taken photos of man’s best friend cost $25, with proceeds benefiting the Humane Society and dog park.

The cost includes a 20-minute mini-photo session for one or two dogs and five professionally edited digital photos provided digitally on a CD. The disk of digital photos will be mailed to pet owners within two weeks of the event with a full print release.

Participants will also receive a 5 percent discount coupon off Charleston Forge’s June 1 second annual Warehouse Sale.

The photos will be taken at the Watauga Dog Park near or at the gazebo between 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 26. Space is limited, and appointments can be made by contacting Shirley at ( or (828) 264-0100.

Participants must also sign a release allowing the sponsoring companies to possibly use their pet’s image in future advertising or promotional events.

“There are so many dogs and cats that need your help, and the Watauga Humane Society can’t do it alone,” a Watauga Humane Society official said. “They need donations to help feed, house and care for those animals less fortunate than our own pets. The Watauga Dog Park provides a place for your pets to socialize and exercise in a safe environment.”
