On Saturday, March 14, Kona Commons will celebrate St. Pet-Tricks Day with a family-friendly extravaganza focusing on pets.

Between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., an array of activities will take place, including a pet food drive, a pet trick contest, pet training and grooming demos, pet kissing, photos with your pet, a pet hydration and snacks station, and the chance to win a $500 pet spa treatment.

At 8 a.m., Kahula ‘O Nawahine Hula Halau will perform during an opening ceremony. Petco’s Mega Pet Adoption will also coincide with the events and run until 4 p.m.

Additionally, Hawai’i’s first and only Arson K9, Kaimi, will be at the event. Kaimi helps fire officials across the state fight arson crimes and responds to fire scenes.

Canned and un-opened bags of dog and cat food will be accepted for the pet food drive. Donations will be given to local animal organizations, including Hawai’i Island Humane Society, KARES, and Advocats.
