If you love dogs, the place for you on Saturday, April 24 is the 2010 Pedigree® Bark in the Park Dog Festival presented by Food. Last year this event drew 14,500 people, most with dogs! This is a FREE event for dogs and people. It’s a great place to see ALL KINDS of canines.

Bark in the Park is 10am-4pm at Metrolina Expo, 7100 Statesville Road (off Sunset Road, exit 16 off I-77). This festival grew too large for a park! Metrolina Expo has plenty of space and free parking. It won high praise last year from people who attended.

The festival features contests like Best Costume, Best Bark, Largest

Dog, Smallest Dog, Best Trick, Disc Throw and Catch, and Disc Long-Shot Catch. Register for contests at the festival. Included this year will be exhibits, dog products, adoptable dogs, prize drawings and many great dogs to see and greet! All dogs please bring your owners on a leash. For more information, check or call 311. This is a signature event of Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department.
