This Saturday from 9am to 8pm and Sunday from 9am to 1pm Vinegar Hill Music Theater in Arundel is hosting a benefit for Lucky Pup Rescue, a nonprofit out of Kennebunkport with a mission of finding homes for dogs in need. It's called "Santa Paws Fest"

It's going to be a 2 day party for humans and their pups where you can dance the day away to live music, have fun decorating gingerbread dogs, get your (and your furry friend's) picture with Santa, enjoy a hot cocoa while you get your face painted or make a wreath and sip on some cider and more.

You'll also have an opportunity to sponsor a holiday gift for a pup in the foster care program at the Lucky Pup Awareness Station. There will be info there about adoptable dogs and rescue needs.

You can even adopt a tree as part of the Adopt-a-Tree Festival, with trees and wreaths decorated by local businesses and supporters. Raffle tickets will be sold so if you're lucky enough, you could win a tree, or a beautifully decorated wreath.
