Pooches in the Pool is an annual event at Kokomo Beach that allows dogs in the pool as a final hurrah for the summer season at the family aquatic center.

For a couple hours, a few hundred dogs of all shapes and sizes enjoy swimming, splashing, running around with other dogs and keeping their owners on their toes.

The scene at Pooches in the Pool is a colorful and lively one. Some dogs take off to explore the waters on their own while some seem content to hang with their owners. The event is held annually after the pool closes for swimming.
