DULUTH —The city of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department and Duluth Historical Society have officially announced the kickoff search for the new Chattapoochee Dog Park mayor.

Those who would like to enter a candidate need to do so by Aug. 23. The campaign runs from Sept. 1-29. The winner will be announced at the annual Chattapoochee PetFest on Oct. 6.

This year, the organizations are looking for business partners to serve as Blue Ribbon Sponsors to elect the next dog mayor. These sponsors will consist of any business or organization that has signed up to become a sponsor of the 2013 Chattapoochee Pet Fest through the Duluth Historical Society by Aug. 23.

When the sponsors are signed up, the public can support their candidates by visiting the “Blue Ribbon” location.
