Grab your best (four-legged) friend and head to Bark Bash for a day of fun and activities for humans and animals. The second annual event is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 12 at Knox Farm State Park.
Dress your dog in a costume for the chance to win prizes; shop the more than 50 vendors for pet-friendly (and human friendly) gifts and supplies. Take part in the “Country Comfort Inn Bark Dash,” a three-quarter mile walk for dogs and owners (the $10 entry will support Knox Farm State Park). Each participant will receive a bandana, raffle tickets and an extra gift. Register at friendsofknoxfarm.org.
Be sure your dog is vaccinated and on a leash.
Don’t have a dog? Good news. Nearly 20 adoption and rescue groups will be on hand with dogs looking for a forever home.
The day also includes food trucks, entertainment and raffles. More info is at friendsofknoxfarm.org and the event's Facebook page.
