The National Museum of the Marine Corps is having its annual Dog Days event.
Scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, the event will take place at the museum, 18900 Jefferson Davis Highway in Triangle.
Activities for kids, a bulldog “kissing” booth, and a dog costume contest are going to be offered.

Participants can adopt a pet and learn about local non-profits, including the Prince William Humane Society and Semper K9.
Master Sergeant Chris Willingham, a retired Marine Corps dog trainer and handler, is giving a talk about his work with Lucca in the Scuttlebutt Theater at Noon.
Lucca was an improvised explosive device (IED) dog who lost her leg during an Afghanistan explosion.
Attendees may bring their dogs to the museum. Individuals who would like to go into the museum may drop off their pups off with Dogtopia, which is offering walking services.
