Pets, and the humans who love them, will take over the Minnesota State Fairgrounds this Saturday!

Pet-A-Palooza is a free event that features some 30 exhibitors and 40 rescue and adoption groups.

The Urban Dog will put on a bunch of fun activities, interactive games and even a “Pet Buffet” so your Chow Chow can chow down!

Get there early and register your dog for one of the five high-flying events put on by Dock Dogs Northern Stars.

B.A.R.T., or Basic Animal Rescue Training, will also put on demonstrations to unlock the inner hero in your pooch.

You can catch some other exciting demos from The St. Paul Police K-9 Foundation.

Never heard of Flyball? Watch this, have your mind blown and then come see it in person!

There will also be musical performances from acts such as Ragtown, Tim Sigler, Mitch Gorden and the Unleaded Band and Rock Camp for Dads.

Oh, and I can’t forgot to mention that ordained minister and animal chaplain Sid Korpi will be on hand to provide pet blessings. Yep, you read right!

Pet-A-Palooza goes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Click here for more information!
