Each year, thousands of humans and their dogs make it a tradition to attend this annual event creating a great day of camaraderie amongst animal lovers. Emcees, ABC7’s Hosea Sanders and Roz Varon, will be on site kicking off the walk with dogs and the run without dogs, and keeping everyone energized throughout the morning. Cat owners are welcome as well and are given the opportunity to make a pin in honor of their feline friends that are not able to attend the dog-friendly event.
Activities include a dog obstacle course, Denise Zak pet psychic, pet massages, dog tattoos, nail clipping spa, souvenir photo booth, product samples from our sponsors, free snacks, contests, 50/50 cash raffle, face-painting and fun for the kids, and more.
Bark in the Park is made possible by our generous sponsors: ABC7, Hill’s Science Diet,BMO/Harris Investments, PetSmart, 103.5 KissFM, and many more corporate and individual supporters.
Advance registration is $35 for adults, $15 for children 3-15, and dogs and children under 3 are free. Walkers/runners are encouraged to register and raise funds for some great prizes online.
