9th Annual Spring Bark in the Park
Guests are invited to bring their favorite four-legged friends (and their leashes) to enjoy a howling good time and raise funds for the continued operation of both the Hefflinger and Hanscom off-leash dog parks. Planned activities include: Splat the Cat, Tic Tac Paw, Bobbing for Dawgs, Paw-Casso, and more Game prizes sponsored by Sergeants Pet care. New this year at 1:00 p.m. will be a Style Show contest sponsored by Natural Balance/Petco. Dogs can compete in their weight group, for either the most creative costume or the best look-alike costume with their owner for a $5 entry fee. Prizes will be given in all categories. The American Red Cross will be giving a CPR demo for dogs. Dog-friendly vendors will provide more information about canine toys and tools, rescue groups will feature dogs available for adoption, and the first 1,000 dogs will receive goody bags. Numerous raffles and merchandise will also be available, so attendees are encouraged to bring extra cash.
