Dog Day Saturday Afternoon at Sidetrack returns this Saturday, July 3 from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. This is the first in-person event with the pups in 15 months! (Image from Sidetrack). Check-out more "Dog Days" of Summer events below. 

The “Dog Days” of summer last from July 3 to August 11. 

The term “Dog Days” traditionally refers to a period of particularly hot and humid weather occurring during the summer months of July and August in the Northern Hemisphere.

In ancient Greece and Rome, the Dog Days were believed to be a time of drought, bad luck, and unrest, when dogs and men alike would be driven mad by the extreme heat. Today, the phrase doesn’t conjure up such bad imagery. Instead, the Dog Days are associated purely with the time of summer’s peak temperatures and humidity. (almanac.com)
