#ShowLove Fest at the Gaithersburg Arts Barn in Kentlands


Love for your fellow animals. Love for your fellow man. Celebrate it all at the #ShowLove Fest at the Arts Barn on February 10 starting at 6 p.m. Five-year old humanitarian Austin Perine uses his allowance to feed the homeless in his native Atlanta, handing them food with the reminder, "Don't forget to show love." At our event, Austin will also share his love of animals by emceeing a video festival. Gaithersburg residents can share their favorite animal videos on Facebook and Twitter @ArtsOnTheGreen using #ShowLove by February 8. 

Austin will be joined by sports journalist Grant Paulsen for an evening that includes videos, a canine kissing booth, therapy dogs, pet-related gifts, and more, sponsored in part by the Montgomery County Humane Society. Resource information about homelessness will also be available. Admission is $12. Purchase tickets here.

This is a City of Gaithersburg, Maryland announcement.

Marvelous, Roy, a 5 year old humanitarian...  And he looks so mature and capable of being part of the Gaithersburg's 'ShowLove Fest.' You must be very proud of the work the Gaithersburg's community does for its residents. They are so creative with their attractive and inviting events.

P.s.: I also love the fact that young Austing gets this at such an early age, there are so many people that never get this concept, Endre
