Pets are encouraged to bring their humans to Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission’s (CCPRC) Bark in the Park event on September 23rd at North Charleston Wannamaker County Park. The event runs from noon until 4 pm.
Bark in the Park has something for everyone including pet exhibits, experts, entertainment and more. Admission is $5 per person and Gold Pass Members and children 12 and under are free.
Dogs will get great exercise enjoying Wannamaker’s off-leash dog park while their owners enjoy live music from Sunflowers and Sin. There will also be a pet parade (costumes are encouraged), contests, and Swift Paws lure chasing, which allows dogs the opportunity to run on a lure race course. Dog-related vendors, as well as several non-profit rescue groups, will also be on site throughout the event, so pet owners are encouraged to stop by to support these great organizations.
The event schedule is:
- 12 p.m.: Live music – Sunflowers and Sin
- 1 p.m.: Pet contests and pet parade
- 2 p.m.: Live music
- 3 p.m.: Pet contests
Food trucks will also be on site, and beverages will be available for purchase during the event. Pets at the festival will need to be leashed or restrained when not in the off-leash dog park area. Outside food, beverages and coolers are not permitted. A photo ID is required to purchase alcohol.
Other upcoming dog-friendly events at CCPRC parks include Dog Day Afternoon on September 9th at Splash Island and September 10th at Whirlin Waters Waterpark and the season’s final Yappy Hours at James Island County Park on September 14th and October 12th. Splash Island waterpark will also host a one-time special Yappy Hour event for the first time on September 7th.
