(FAIRFAX) - Monroe Lake has partnered with the Monroe County 4H Dog Club to offer a special event for people and their dogs at Fairfax State Recreation Area on Sunday, October 11.

"A Dog-gone Delightful Afternoon" runs from 2 to 5 p.m. It will feature eight activities for visitors and their canine companions: agility course, trick-for-a-treat, scent trail challenge, speed race, rally course, fetch competition, frisbee challenge and high jump. You also can meet adoptable dogs from the Bloomington Animal Shelter.

Visitors are encouraged to bring a dog food donation for the Bloomington Animal Shelter's Food Bank. Everyone who donates will be entered into a drawing for a 2016 DNR Annual Entrance Pass.

Proof of current rabies vaccination for dogs must be presented at event check-in. Participating dogs should be friendly and comfortable with unfamiliar people and other dogs.

The event is free after paying the standard entrance fee of $7 per in-state vehicle and $9 per out-of-state vehicle. Campers staying at Paynetown SRA will be admitted for free to Fairfax SRA on October 11 by showing their camping hangtag (must be valid through October 11).
