Harvard Balloon Festival - 2018


The Harvard Hot Air Balloon Festival on Labor Day Weekend is a hot new event in McHenry County. It is also a fundraiser for local Harvard non-profit organizations. Dogs On the Go is thrilled to be included in the list of recipients for this year's event. Last year, in spite of bad weather, the festival raised over $40,000 for local non-profits!

Festival jobs are staffed by volunteers, who then receive FREE ADMISSION to the event for the day they work a 3 or 4 hour shift. All volunteers also receive a free Dogs On the Go baseball cap.

The process for signing up for volunteer jobs is easy and online.   The links are below:
