Lake Bluff is a very dog-friendly town. There’s a dog on every corner — at least! More likely one in just about every-other home. And come summer, you’ll start seeing dogs of a more colorful nature when the public art display “Dogs on the Bluff” unleashes more than 70 fiberglass dogs and puppies. These are works of art, designed by local artists at both the professional and amateur level, and they are sponsored by local businesses, organizations or families.
Dogs on the Bluff is one of the many anniversary events planned by Lake Bluff’s 125 Committee in partnership with the Lake Bluff History Museum. The art installation will be up all summer, but the formal “launch date” is June 21, which also happens to be Father’s Day.
Dogs and dads: what more can we celebrate?
The creatively painted fiberglass dogs and puppies will be up all summer, culminating in Lake Bluff’s 125th Anniversary Bash on September 26, which will include music, food, friends and fireworks at Blair Park.
