WESTPORT — After the Westport Dog Festival was canceled twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will make a grand return this weekend.
The festival regularly attracts an average of about 3,000 people and roughly 1,000 dogs, said Matthew Mandell, executive director and president of the Westport-Weston Chamber of Commerce. “It’s quite popular,” he said. “People love doing it. People love their dogs.”
