NEW CANAAN, Conn. — It may still be spring, but the dog days of summer will start this weekend in New Canaan with its annual dog day festival.

There will be activities for all of the canines and their human companions, including a dress up photo area with Venture Photography, dog makeovers by The Hairy Barker, and a “pet-oriented” scavenger hunt, a news release said. There will also be food and beverages and live music by George Gensure.

Participants can gather at Village Critter Outfitter , 107 Cherry St.

Cherry Street will be closed to traffic from Main Street to Burtis Avenue from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
