Greyhounds Reach the Beach is an annual charity event celebrating the greyhound breed with the purpose of creating an awareness of the need for adoptive and foster homes, and raising money to support nonprofit greyhound adoption groups. It is held every year during Columbus Day weekend for the owners of adopted greyhounds and other adopted sighthound breeds.
This year celebrates the 25th anniversary for the event, and, for the first time, will be held at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. The event features speakers, vendors, a silent auction, a raffle, the Beer & Biscuit Mixer, the Blessing of the Hounds, local bus and walking tours, and more. The event winds down with a parade on the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk Sunday morning, Oct. 13.
