Another one for the dogs

By Meredith Deliso

Now here’s an event that’s for the dogs.

On March 27, McGorlick Park will turn into a pet party when animal activist collective Love Your Pet! hosts an outdoor disco for our four-legged friends.

Emeline Rouvre threw the party, amusingly called Yes Disco Pet, You Can Boogie, in her native France last year with great results — more than 400 animal lovers turned out to boogie with the animals.

Rouvre, who now lives in Greenpoint, is expecting about half that number at the Brooklyn edition, where you can boogie with your pet to DJs, bands including dream poppers Suspicious Package, and take in a “canine catwalk show” of pet products.

“Brooklyn was the perfect borough to do this party,” said Rouvre, who has a cat named BoyGeorgeMichael back home. “There’s a lot of space and green areas, a nice neighborhood life, and people are really sensitive to new and different propositions!”

Pet discos apparently included.

Yes Disco Pet, You Can Boogie at McGorlick Park (Driggs Avenue and Russel Street in Greenpoint, no phone), March 27, 4-7 pm. For info, visit
