From the dog paddle to the downward dog, there's something for everyone this weekend in the 'burg.

1.) Doggie Swim Day: Take your pooch for a dip in Fossil Park Pool, 6739 Dr. M.L. King Jr. St. N.

3.) Fitness Awareness Throwdown: What's a Fitness Awareness Throwdown? you may ask. It's a competition of strength, muscle, endurance and just plain fun.
