Toronto gets a dog-friendly holiday market and you can sip at Boozy Puppacinos

If your puppy has been a good boy or girl all year round, you can take them to Toronto’s newest dog-friendly holiday market.

The Ontario Doggos organize a one-day holiday market for over 1,000 people and their dogs to shop from local businesses, sip dog-themed festive drinks and even get pictures with their furry BFFs and Santa Claus.

The holiday market runs on 11 December from 12 noon to 8 p.m., featuring 30 local businesses transporting items such as holiday dog ​​bandanas, dog mother sweaters and “chef-inspired treats,” according to their press release.

Owners can wrap a gift from the “Tree of Treats” while inside the market if they are looking for an extra activity. “Treet of Treats” is a Christmas tree “filled with gifts uniquely wrapped” with an unknown gift.

Although this holiday market goes to the dogs, there will be plenty of drinks for two-legged participants.

The market will have a holiday bar serving hot chocolate to younger guests and sparkling dog-themed cocktails like Mistletoe Wet Kiss or Spiked Puppaccino for all adults looking for something a little harder for the holiday season.

Santa will also be present and attendees and their pets can take a picture with the big man in the red suit.

Tickets for the event cost $ 16.95 online and include admission for one person and one dog. However, dogs must be kept on a leash while inside the market.

The event takes place at Daniel’s Spectrum, and attendees can choose from four time periods to attend while purchasing their tickets.

All guests will be asked to show proof of vaccination and ID at the doors and you must wear a mask while at the market unless you are drinking or eating.

If you are in the area, day tickets will be sold at the door at a higher price of $ 20 if there are any left over.
