    Frankenmuth Dog Bowl 2023

    Unless you don't like crowds, there is something for everyone. From viewing morning Hot Air Balloons to Balloon Glow at night. For the dogs: vendors, dog play area, treats, shows to watch and more. Some of the Riverplace shops allow dogs in store also. There were areas with shade and tents to sit under if needed.
