Dogs & Beats 2 | Fortitude Valley

When: Sunday 

Hitting the dance floor with your pet dog isn’t something you do every day, but maybe you should? Prohibition in the Valley is hosting a silent disco for you and your pooch which = dream. So that everything runs smoothly, dogs will have to remain on their leashes but that shouldn’t stop you from having a boogie with your fave paws. They will also be donating the ticket costs to the RSPCA – how good!
