On Saturday and Sunday, July 18 and 19, Friends of Fort Knox will host the fort's second annual Pet Show weekend. The event won't focus on specific breeds, but has whimsical contest categories that include best pet costume, looks like owner, best pet trick, cutest, ugliest and most exotic pet.

The Saturday show will be for dogs only, while Sunday is for all other pets.

On Saturday, there will be a dog agility demonstration in front of the fort, starting at noon.

Pets can be registered in advance by visiting the event page on the Friends’ website, fortknox.maineguide.com, or at the show Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 11 a.m. Regular Fort Knox admission fees apply, but there is no fee to enter a pet into the show. Ribbons will be awarded to winners in each pet show category.
