Dogs of every shape, size and breed showed up for a good time on the downtown Gainesville square Saturday, March 23. The Mutts on Main event, put on by Main Street Gainesville and the Hall County Animal Shelter, gave dog owners a chance to show off their best friends. Guests could enjoy a dog fashion show or test out treats and toys from the vendors on site. The free event also offered a pop-up dog park for the animals to run around in the sunny, cool weather.
