Buckham Alley Festival
A beloved local spot in Flint, Buckham Alley is an expanding home to several bars and markets frequented by Flint residents. Friends of the Alley, a nonprofit dedicated to beautification, throws an annual street festival in Buckham Alley to raise funds to keep Downtown Flint a wonderful place to visit with projects like planting, murals, and amenity installations! Buckham Alley Festival is a free event for all ages with live music all evening, and food stands lining the block. Leashed dogs are welcome, but owners should prepare for dense crowds due to this event’s popularity!
Dashing through the streets, in matching Santa suits; past the cheering crowds, down the race route! The Flint YMCA puts on their charity Santa Run each December, and anyone can deduce it is a huge hit in the community from the thousands of Santas in the street. Raising money for a scholarship program benefiting low-income children in the community, the Santa Run 5K is an untimed race, with shorter routes available for the kids. Registration cost for adults is $25, and includes a milk and cookie snack along with, most importantly, a Santa suit. Dogs run for free and are encouraged to dress up!
Tricks for Treats
Recently surpassing a decade of Tricks for Treats, this event hosted by Genesee Humane Society gets bigger each year. There will be raffles and groups handing out treats and candy in exchange for Fido’s best trick. When you and your furry pal are done making your rounds, grab some grub from any of the food vendors available while the pups play. Naturally, there will be a costume contest to be judged as the event rolls on. Better start working on your best trick and costume, and head over to Key Lore Woof Woods Dog Park for a spooky evening with Flint’s pet-loving community!
