Dalmatians and dogs that share homes with dalmatians are invited to bring their human families to a day of play, food, contests and demonstrations. At noon, there will be a ceremony to recognize those people who have given a rescued dalmatian a home and those club members who have run the rescue operations. Besides the contest for best spot constellation, other award categories will include most waggily tail, best food mooching skills and best smile.

Festivities take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Sandymount Park in Finksburg. Admission is free. Call (410) 356-2352.
