There was barking good fun at the Bark Park’s fifth annual “Howl-o-ween” ghoulish outdoor event at Fish Tales Restaurant held October 26.
“Labs Armstrong” took home first place in the large dog category and “Two Sick Puppies” received first place in the small dog category. The audience favorite award was presented to the “beer can dog” and the judge’s favorite was won by the “Breast Cancer Awareness dog” who was decked-out in pink.
“We were very pleased with the turnout again this year and extremely grateful to our hosts at Fish Tales,” said Bark Park President Wendy Bolton. “This annual celebration is such a fun way to get in the ‘Howl-o-ween’ spirit while spending time with your four-legged, family members and raising funds to keep our Bark Park free and open for everyone to use!”
Prizes consisted of Bark Park merchandise, Fish Tales gift cards, and plants from Elmgren’s Garden Center. Local, international award-winning photographer, Megan Myrick, photographed all the fancily dressed pups again this year.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Bryan County Bark Park, a 501(c)3 organization. This mission of this nonprofit is to provide a dog park for the community which is safe for families and where well-behaved dogs can be let off their leashes to run free in addition to ensuring that the park provides a well-maintained and clean environment for all responsible dog owners.
