Legoland Water Park is going to the dogs, but it’s not a bad thing.
On Nov. 8, dogs can bring their owners to Legoland Water Park at Legoland Florida Resort from 1 to 4:30 p.m. for Everything is Paw-some, a four-legged event benefitting the Humane Society of Polk County.
Dogs are welcome to cool off in the Lego Wave Pool, the Duplo Splash Safari pool and the Joker Soaker pool while humans enjoy demonstrations by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit, a doggy costume contest and a raffle in which a plucky dog will pick the lucky winner. In addition, caricature artists and portrait photographers will be on hand to capture one-of-a-kind memories and the Humane Society of Polk County will help facilitate pet adoptions. Food, beverages and souvenirs will be available for purchase.
Admission is $5 per dog, $10 per human, with a one-dog-per-human maximum. Event parking is included with the ticket price. Guests will park in the north parking lot, adjacent to Legoland Water Park, which is located off Helena Road between Roosevelt Drive and Cypress Gardens Road.
Several pet-friendly VIP experience cabanas will be offered with deluxe amenities such as champagne and refreshments for a donation of $55. Businesses interested in a unique sponsorship opportunity can reserve a limited number of “We are Paw-some” cabanas with a wide variety of amenities for $225.
“We’re excited to partner with the Humane Society of Polk County to provide resources to help the county’s only no-kill shelter and find homes for pets in need,” said Phil Royle, product excellence manager at Legoland Florida Resort and a member of the Humane Society of Polk County board of directors. “Proceeds from the event will benefit not only the Humane Society, but also Merlin’s Magic Wand, our worldwide charity for seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children.”
