WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Tonight pups of all shapes and sizes ran down to the Legion Stadium Pool for the Pooch Plunge. The annual event takes place the week after Labor Day, when the public pools are no longer open to human swimmers.

Folks can bring any dog down for a dip and a chance to cool off in the lingering heat of the summer. It's just $5 per dog per day to join in on all the fun.

Dogs can enjoy the pool until Sunday.

Proceeds benefit the Wilmington Dog Park Committee.
