"Bark in the Park" Pet Festival: A Howl-in' Good Time!
Calling all dog lovers! "Bark in the Park" is back for another year of tail-waggin' fun! This paw-some event will feature all your favorite activities, including:
- A 5K run or charity walk where you can show off your dog's speed and stamina (or lack thereof)
- Children's activities like a doggy obstacle course and a pet costume contest
- Raffles and silent auction where you can win prizes for your furry friend
- Rescues with adoptable dogs so you can find your new best friend
- Music, beer, and food trucks to keep you and your pup well-fed and entertained
All well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome! So come one, come all, and celebrate our furry friends at the Bark in the Park Pet Festival!
But beware! This festival is not for the faint of heart. There will be plenty of barking, tail-wagging, and general dog chaos. So if you're looking for a relaxing day in the park, this is not the event for you. But if you're up for a good time with your furry friends, then the Bark in the Park Pet Festival is the paw-fect place for you!
P.S. If you've lost your dog, don't despair! Billy's Posse is a volunteer organization that helps find lost and stolen dogs in Southeastern Wisconsin. They're here to help, so don't hesitate to contact them.
