2013 Canine Cannon Ball @ Dog Days
Charity Fundraiser for the Dogwood Animal Shelter
Free Family Weekend Event at the Lake!
Friday June 07, 2013 thru Sunday June 09, 2013
The Lake of the Ozarks will celebrate the return of its most unique Event June 7th thru 9th, when the pooches from Dock Dogs return to Osage Beach for the fourth annual Canine Cannonball. The annual dog jumping contest at Dog Days offers high flying action and fun for fans of all ages. “We love hosting this event because it’s fun, it’s free, it’s for families, and it helps the Dogwood Animal Shelter,” said Dog Days owner Mark Barrett. Dogwood Animal Shelter, the only no-kill shelter at Lake of the Ozarks, will continue to be the charity to benefit from the Canine Cannonball. Dog Days invites the whole family, pets included, to support the animal shelter by attending the event.

The Lake of the Ozarks Marine Dealers Association (LOMDA) will once again be bringing the best boats, PWC's, and all the accessories to go along with them for a fun day on the lake to the Dog Days Bar & Grill docks. If you want to stay up-to-date on what's new for the coming summer season, you won't want to miss this incredible show.
Boating season is unofficially in full swing once the Spring Harbor Hop rolls around. This is an event that residents and visitors alike look forward to every year. Travel by boat to the many participating waterfront bars and restaurants all over the lake area collecting cards for your poker hand. Expect to spend a large portion of your day at Dog Days though, because we always have the best live music going all day long and well into the night.
Missouri produces some of the best craft beers, wine, and live music, and our 2nd Annual Homegrown Festival will feature all of these! Spend the day enjoying talented entertainers from right here in the Show-Me-State while sampling some of the many delicious beverages made in the area. They all pair amazingly well with everything on the Dog Days menu. This is taking place the day after the Spring Harbor Hop, so plan for an entire weekend full of fun! Just a head's up, if it rains that weekend, we will reschedule this event for May 14.
Yet another annual event that brings lots of excited visitors to our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront restaurant is the Canine Cannonball presented by Dock Dogs. Four-legged competitors spend the weekend vying to be the dog that can jump the highest, farthest, and fastest into the giant pool of water set up next to our docks. This free event is one that the entire family can enjoy.
We love having poker runs on the water here at the lake, and this is another very popular one that takes place every year. Proceeds raised are used by H.E.R.O.E.S. Care to provide support to military families in the communities where they live, as well as the Global Orphan Project, which mobilizes local churches in some of the poorest communities on earth to care for needy children. Active military members are offered free seats on poker run boats. Lots of fun for a couple of great causes.
Quite possibly our most popular annual event every summer is the single largest 1-day boating event in the area - AquaPalooza! We set up a great big lakeside stage and offer 5 hours of amazing live music that can be enjoyed from either the land or chilling in the lake. There is a waiting list every year for dock slips for this exciting event, and people start reserving their spots before the concert is even over! We'll offer more updates about bands and other details before the big day, but mark that date on your calendar right now!
We debuted another brand new event last year due to the popularity of the Canine Cannonball, and everyone loved Dueling Dogs every bit as much as its predecessor. Two dogs race against each other instead of going one at a time in this side-by-side, 2-lane, head-to-head race. Start training now, and get your dog signed up for this cool competition next summer.
