Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Mardi Gras 4Paws will once again benefit the League for Animals and People of the Summit. Mardi Gras 4Paws is a costumed dog parade along the sidewalks of Frisco’s Main Street inspired by New Orleans’s Mystic Krew of Barkus parade. Frisco’s Mardi Gras 4Paws will feature a “yappy” hour street party on Second Avenue between Main Street and the Granite Street alley with gumbo and beignets from The Lost Cajun restaurant, hot beverages from Abbey’s Coffee, beer from New Belgium Brewing and wine from Cupcake Vineyards, along with a dog parade. Online pre-registration is $15 for the 1st dog and includes dog treats, a Mardi Gras doggie bandana, beads and a token for either one bowl of gumbo or a drink. Each additional family dog is only $5, and additional dog registrations do not include the token or bandana. Day of registration is $20 for the 1st dog and $5 for additional dogs. Registration and more information are available at
