DogFest: A Celebration of Being a Camden Bulldog, will be held on Saturday at Camden High’s baseball/softball complex at American Legion Park in Camden.  The original date of the event was rained out last month.
The event is sponsored by Mid-Carolina Credit Union. The day will feature baseball and softball games between rivals Camden and Lugoff-Elgin. 
The varsity baseball game will begin at 3 p.m., following the junior varsity contest at noon. There will be a CHS alumni game at 9 a.m.
The varsity softball teams from the two rivals will play a doubleheader beginning at noon.
To kick off DogFest, the Camden High JROTC Color Guard will present the colors and the Kershaw County Show Choir will perform the National Anthem. The Bulldog Mascot will entertain the fans throughout the day. A special salute will be given to Camden Elementary first grade classes. 
In addition to the games, Ronnie’s Ribs and BBQ will have sandwiches and plates for sale. Other activities include an inflatable fun house, climbing wall and radar speed-throwing booth.
A highlight of DogFest will be a “Diamond in the Rough” search between the varsity and junior varsity baseball games.  The purchase of a Relay for Life paper cupcake for $1 buys admission onto the field to search for the “Diamond in the Rough.”  The winner of this event receives a gift certificate from Todd and Moore Sports. 
 A new feature to this year’s event will be a “Diamond Toss” competition between the coaching staffs of the two schools to be held during the junior varsity games. “Diamond Bingo” will be played during the varsity baseball and softball games. Winners of Diamond Bingo will receive gift cards from local restaurants. 
Admission to DogFest is $5.
