Hounds at Hawaiian Falls Mansfield: Noon – 5 pm September 9. Free admission to active military members, veterans and first responders who reserve a ticket online and show proof of service at the gate. $20 adults, $15 children under 48 inches tall. One dog is included with adult ticket purchase, $5 for an additional dog with a limit of two dogs per adult.
All dogs are required to have complete, up-to-date vaccinations and rabies shots to attend. Additionally, separate pool areas will be set aside for large- and small-breed dogs.
Hawaiian Falls’ season passes are not valid for admission as this is a post-season fundraiser for various DFW animal rescue groups.
