SHOP FARRAGUT and Town of Farragut have teamed up with Smoky Mountain Dock Dogs & Ricki’s Pet Depot to bring a nationally sanctioned regional canine aquatics competition of DOCK DOGS INTERNATIONAL. The festivities will take place in the Village Green Shopping Center parking lot, just south of Stein Mart and the new Planet Fitness, Friday August 16 through Sunday the 18th.
