The kennel clubs of Metairie and Louisiana co-host the Lagniappe Classic four-day all-breed dog show. The event features 1,300 entrants representing more than 100 breeds and varieties recognized by the American Kennel Club, from toy poodles and bulldogs to Great Danes.

There are new competitions each day, resulting in awards in individual classes and best in show. There also are puppy classes for many breeds. A vendor fair features jewelry, pet gear, pet photographers, veterinarians and more. Attendees are encouraged to bring a dry or canned dog food donation for the Pontchartrain Center Pet Food Drive, which benefits local shelters. Admission is free. — WILL COVIELLO
