Looking for something fun to do in South Jersey this Sunday?  Want to bring your dog to something fun, too?  Why not visit the Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center in Millville for their Annual PAWS for Art event.

We attended two years ago and had a great time seeing all the doggies and other animals.  We also saw glass-blowing demonstrations, met local artists and learned about NJ’s rich history of glass-making.

There’s free admission but they take donations for the Cumberland County SPCA. Pet lovers, pet owners and their dogs all come together for a day of art and fun on Sunday, April 3 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pet food donations are also welcome.
