The Spot is the place to be this weekend

Two big events planned for Saturday

The Spot Pool and Billiard Hall located in downtown Minot will be the stop for two different events on Saturday: the Outdoor Peddlers Market and WoofStock: Music and Pet-Friendly Fun.

The Outdoor Peddlers Market will take place first from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The market will feature 100 percent handmade and handcrafted items from local vendors.

Vendors at the market will include Sticks and Stones by Keri, Alpenhorn, Double Trouble Treats, Hick Chicks Couture, Whole Latte Gifts, TJ’s Essential Oils and Accessories, Hey Liv Creative, Volz Vintage Garden and many more.

Alongside the vendors will be Mi Mexico, The Cheesesteak Factory, Fun on a Bun Hot Dog Stand and Siri’s Thai Cuisine selling food for shoppers to enjoy. Roaming Coffee Castle will be there to give a coffee fix to whoever needs it.

The Saturday Outside Peddlers Market is the second of four that have been planned with another coming in August and one in September.

When the market is all finished up, the dogs will be taking over with WoofStock: Music and Pet-Friendly Fun at 5 p.m. The event will be a fun event to bring four-legged friends while helping raise funds for the Turtle Mountain Animal Rescue (TMAR).

The cost of entry is $2 per person and 100 percent of door fees will go to the animal rescue alongside donations from Biscuits and Bows Pet Spa and Three Ducks Photography.

The vent will feature music from Musik Worx D.J. and Photobooths, puppy pools to help keep dogs cool in the summer heat, doggy merchandise vendors and drink specials including a “Puppy Punch” that will give 100 percent of proceeds to TMAR.

The event will also give pet owners a chance to really spoil their pup with Biscuits and Bows Pet Spa being on scene and offering a Puppy Spa and Three Ducks Photography holding a Pet Photobooth.

The Turtle Mountain Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization that works towards rescuing stray and unwanted animals while also putting into place the necessary services to decrease the unwanted animal population.

TMAR was started in 2014 and is a non-profit 501c3. They rely greatly on the efforts of volunteers and donors who are helping them achieve their goals.

More information on both events can be found on their event pages of Facebook.
