Img_0650After a historic week at AT&T Park, things are still quite busy here. Saturday saw not only the wrapup of Heritage Week with Latino Heritage Day, it was also the return of the Dog Days of Summer event.

Pregame festivities included a dog parade around the field, a concert by a youth Latino band (the boy playing the guitar at right did a pretty fair Carlos Santana impersonation) and a doggy costume contest — in that order. During the game, the canines and their companions enjoyed the contest from their special seating section in the bleachers.

The extremely large canine seen above, who’s been a costume contest finalist before, won the contest this year for her horse-racing outfit. Others competing included a pair of dogs asking to be "eliminated" by Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow, "Crazy Crabby Abby" and a dog sporting a kayak motif. Check out photos of Dog Days here.
