Ponce City Market is offering free pooch portraits this weekend

It’s virtually always a good plan to hit the Atlanta Beltline and hightail it to Ponce City Market, but, on Saturday, doggie moms and dads have more incentive than usual.

The mix-used hot spot is inviting Atlantans and their pups to stop by The Shed, located just off the Atlanta BeltLine, from 10 a.m. -2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12, for free dog portraits by Atlanta photographer, Scott Lowden.

The free portraits coincide with the grand opening of PCM’s newest amenity, Barking Hound Village, an award-winning dog valet service for visitors, office workers and residents with pooch pals.
