Legion Stadium opens up Pooch Plunge

As the dog days of summer continue, man’s best friend gets the chance to cool off this week.

The swimming pool at Wilmington’s Legion Stadium is going to the dogs.

Every day this week the city is holding a Pooch Plunge. For five dollars, you can let your dog swim between the hours of 4:00 and 8:00 p.m.

Saturday, the Pooch Plunge is from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Proceeds benefit the Pender County Humane Society.
