On Saturday, July 13, the Duneland Business Initiative Group will sponsor the 12th annual Bark in the Park, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Thomas Centennial Park in downtown Chesterton.

Contests at Noon

Do you and your pooch bear a physical resemblance to each other? Can you do a good Lassie-bark? Does your new dog know some old tricks? Then brush that coat, and polish those nails and put your best paw forward to vie for valuable prizes! There are four contests--Best Dressed Dog; Owner-Dog Look Alike; Best Trick; and Best Human Barkers (adults and kids!) No registration is necessary, and contests are free to enter. Contest prizes are provided by Chesterton Feed and Garden and the Duneland Business Initiative Group. Contests start at Noon by the Bandstand.

Both K-9s and Kidz will have a blast splashing and looking for the lucky duck in the Duck Hunt game where every player wins a prize! Stop by the PawCasso booth where your pooch can paint a masterpiece just for you!

Pet friendly day

This pet-friendly day in the park includes booths featuring local shelters and regional pet rescue organizations, specialized pet services in the area, pet merchandise and treats. AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) testing will be offered by PetsConnect, along with demonstrations of tricks and obedience, activities for attendees to do with their dogs, such as a tunnels and jumps. Get a photo taken with your pet at the Maximus Bolo booth.

K-9 Kooling Zones will be available--many water bowls will be placed around the park.

A special water mist area will be available at the southeast corner of the park for overheated hounds and humans.

There will be something going on all day, so come on out to the park for some doggone good fun!
