Dog lovers rejoice!

Woofstock is returning to Toronto this weekend for its 16th season, giving dog owners the chance to celebrate their furry four-legged friends.

The paw-sitively adorable festival dubs itself as “the largest outdoor festival for dogs in all of North America,” and boasts that it attracts tens of thousands of dogs and their faithful owners from across the country and the US.
