From there, throw a costume on your dog and head up the hill to Dogtoberfest at Upper Douglass Park. There's a costume contest, a portrait photographer, activities, and treats to benefit the Dog Play Area. 27th at Douglass, 11 am-2 pm. "Guaranteed fun for all!"
And in a slightly related note: The Chronicle highlights Mona Caron and the new Murals at the Farmer's Market. Nice article. But check out this reader's comment:
That is an awesome and beautiful mural for sure.. Noe Valley does have it's positive aspects, this mural is one of them. Now, if they would only clean up after their dogs so that people can walk down the sidewalks without side stepping crap all the time, then the neighborhood, would be really happening place. Noe Valley you get a A for that mural, but you still lack in the basics... clean up your sidewalks..... Especially those of you who have storefronts.... no one wants to buy anything, especially edible products from a store who has a pile of crap in front of it...Sounds angry. But is it a valid point?
