The online Fig calendar is a curated list of community events happening in Downtown Lancaster.
June 2, 2022
In our first-ever Dog Photo Contest, we asked to see the dogs of Lancaster, and our Fig friends answered! Sponsored by That Pet Place, we hosted the contest on Fig’s social media and received over 100 submissions—which is a lot of cute puppies to choose from.
