My search led me to Bridge Street Town Centre—check out four reasons why it’s the perfect place to take your pup.

Since Teddy is my only dog, he doesn’t have many daily opportunities to interact with other pups. That’s why I love taking him to Bridge Street Town Centre.

Because Bridge Street features lots of pet-friendly shopping + dining, other dogs are always around. The warm environment here will enhance your dog’s social skills and help them get some energy out.

4. Fido Fest is happening this May

This free dog event will take place in the Belk Courtyard and feature pet vendors, live music, face painting, splash zones and more. Plus, PBR Lockhart will host the official Patio Paw-ty next door.
