Cincinnati goes to the dogs — and other animals, for that matter — with the Petopolis Pet Show. Designed to reflect the look of an actual city, the family-oriented show will feature on-site adoption opportunities, activities and attractions for attendees and local, regional and national pet-related businesses. 

In addition to visiting retail outlets, a pet 101 area, an artists’ gallery, costume and trick contests and more, experience the excitement of Ultimate Air Dogs’ dock-diving, an increasingly popular sport in which dogs compete to jump the greatest distance from a dock into water. Pets will even strut their stuff in a pet fashion show. 

Moms get a free Mother’s Day photo by official Petopolis photographer Holly Werden and a certificate for a free cat or kitten adoption. 

10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday; 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. $10 adults; $6 children 6-14; children under 6 and military free; $2 pets (with proceeds benefitting the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). Duke Energy Convention Center, 525 Elm St., Downtown, petopoliscincinnati.com
