A_Dog Day is a celebration of skateboarding, art and music inspired by the life of a man who was a fixture in Burlington, Andy "A_Dog" Williams. When Andy was diagnosed with leukemia in 2012, his friends organized to help support him, and Friends for A_Dog was born. Andy passed a year later and the group formed a nonprofit organization that provides arts education to underserved youth and also campaigns for bone marrow donors. 

This year the 4th annual A_Dog Day brought pro and novice skaters alike to the Andy "A_Dog" Williams Skatepark at the Waterfront. Friends and community members kept his legacy alive with live painting, creative workshops and an evening of music and performance.
