Back for its fourth year, Plymouth’s popular all-about-dogs event is set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 1 at the Hilde Performance Center, 3500 Plymouth Blvd.
The free Bark in the Park event features dog products, dog yoga, rescue organizations, “pup-arazzi” photo booth, bounce house, dog-balloon artist, face painting, demonstrations, food and pet supply vendors, small dog races, food trucks, children’s scavenger hunt and more.
Attendees will have a chance to try Doga – dog yoga. Doga is a partner class for owners and their dogs. Participants should bring a yoga mat.
Twin Cities Disc Dog will have a competition throughout the event. Dogs and their throwers compete in events such as distance catching and choreographed freestyle catching.
The small dog race course will be open to all dogs weighing 20 pounds or less that want to race fellow canines of similar size.
While the event is free, attendees should bring cash for vendors, products and food trucks. Hy-Vee, Mik Mart Ice Cream and lemonade vendors will be on site. Attendees may also pick up a free Bark in the Park food scoop or tote bag, while supplies last.
Dogs must be leashed at the event. Attendees may use the hashtag #PlymouthBarks to share photos of the fun and have a chance to be retweeted by the city.
