Here’s a fun gift for the family and a cool way to help our pet friends. Venture out to the Animal Protective League (APL) Christmas in July Carnival Saturday, July 20, at its shelter. Activities for all ages will be featured including carnival games, scavenger hunt, present-wrapping contest, dog-kissing booth and photos with Santa (until 3 p.m., $5). Try your hand at the dunk tank and watch local celebrities such as Mike Quimby from Green Hyundai, Wes Barr and State Journal-Register reporter Alisa Groeninger squirm or drop. Attendees can also tour the shelter and clinic, purchase light snacks such as cotton candy and meet some of the adorable and adoptable dogs and cats.
