Pooches and Polo at Tinicum Polo - Sat Sept 22 2007

A dog show and polo match at the beautiful Tinicum Park.

The Tinicum Polo Club will be hosting this event on Saturday, Sept 22, 2007. If you've never been to a polo match, it's a lot of fun for the whole family. If you have been to one of the matches, you already knew that.

Polo is a fast paced, intruiging game that requires superb athletic and equestrian skills.

The pooch show promises to be a lot of fun with categories such as least obedient, and best vocal performance. At the end of the day, there will be a pet parade. Gates open at 1pm. There is an admission charge but there will be a complimentary buffet courtesy of the Willow Grove Great Britain's Automotive Group.

ground water.
