The fifth annual Petapalooza will take place Sunday, July 8, in Chestnut Hill. At the pet-friendly festival on Germantown Avenue, there will be activities for both animals and owners. 

Pets can visit a paw reader (like a palm reader), or pose for a caricature. Humans can check out dog training exhibitions, meet with on-site veterinarians, shop pet service booths and connect with pet rescue organizations.
