HUNDREDS of schnauzers will descend on Barry Island for the annual Schnauzerfest on Sunday, October 13.

The dogs and their owners will meet at Marco's Cafe, on the promenade, at 10.45am for a 11am walking start.

Schnauzerfest is an annual charity fundraising event, which gathers lots of lovely schnauzers and humans together for walks up and down the country!

Every penny donated to Schnauzerfest goes to the registered charity, the Diana Brimblecombe Animal Rescue Centre.

There's no set fee to take part in any Schnauzerfest walk.

Everyone is welcome to give as little, or as much as they choose to and the money will go towards helping dogs saved from terrible backgrounds get all the care and veterinary treatment they need, so they can go on to have good lives.
