DOG Days of Summer in Downtown Naperville – 2019
After months of preparation, we’ll be revealing for the first time this summer, our painted summer sculptures – on Friday, May 31, 2019! On display in various downtown sidewalk locations until mid-September, 2019, this year’s sculptures feature DOGS!
Wander around downtown and enjoy the painted creations, 20 DOG SCULPTURES will be sprinkled in various sidewalk locations downtown. Because Downtown Naperville is (paws)itively AWESOME!
Remember to treat the sculptures with TLC. Climbing or standing on the dog sculptures is NOT permitted. Standing next to them and snapping photos is encouraged. Treat them with kindness and encourage others to do the same. 🙂
(NOTE: Dog Sculptures are the property of the sponsor business. At the end of the display period, sponsors receive the dogs back and most donate them to charitable causes. They are not available for purchase).
