By The Staff

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter is host to a daylong event at The Downs at Santa Fe on Saturday. The first-ever Dog Days of Summer in Santa Fe offers a day for the whole family, including canines.
The event kicks off with a Color Dash 5K at 10 a.m., and then continues with live music, food trucks and refreshments from the Santa Fe Brewing Company.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at The Downs, although preregistration is encouraged at sfasdogdays.com. Every paid Dasher receives a white T-shirt, dash bib, CD 5K tattoo and one color pack.
The Dash is a fundraiser held in partnership with the shelter and El Camino Real Academy Wildcats. The race ends with a color explosion at 11 a.m. The “explosion” is actually packets of nontoxic color dye thrown in the air at the conclusion of the race. Also included in the celebration are dance competitions, a hula-hoop contest and many more contests with swag giveaways.
From 11 a.m.-5 p.m., there will be games for dogs and their people, vendor booths, bouncy houses, mural painting, a dog agility course and Frisbee demonstrations from Disc Dogs of New Mexico.
