There’s no denying that dogs rule the warm season. They have dog parks, dog-friendly patios, and even the “dog days of summer.” But while every dog may have his day, cats own the night in St. Paul. Or, at least, one night. Now in its eighth year, the Cat Video Festival is a celebration of all things feline. Thousands of cat enthusiasts will pack CHS Field for an evening full of cat-themed games, cat-inspired artists, food (the human kind), beer, fireworks, and, of course, hilarious cat vids. Funny cats, scared cats, warrior cats, and everyone’s favorite, cats stuck in containers, will all be included in the reel shown on the outfield jumbotron. This year will be the festival’s first since the untimely passing of Grumpy Cat, but her spirit will live on through the meows of grown adults wearing cat ears and puff-paint T-shirts inside a minor-league baseball stadium.
