The Hamptons Dog Show, hosted by the East Hampton Lions Club at the American Legion Hall in Amagansett, returns Saturday for its fifth year. It's a fund-raiser for a fitting cause: the Guide Dog Foundation of Long Island.

From 4 to 7 p.m., dogs and their human companions will compete for awards including most unique breed, most unique feature, best trick, best dog/owner lookalike, and best in show. There will be food and ice cream trucks for the humans and treats for the dogs, plus vendors, live music, and a cash bar.

To enter a canine competitor costs $40; registration is online at this link. Tickets for spectators are $10 and free for kids 10 and under.
