Waterfront Park on Daniel Island draws in people and pets, bikers and boaters, along the trails, dock and greenspace every day of the week. For one Saturday this November, the park will be a special haven for dogs and their families.
Hosted by The Daniel Island News, the Bark in the Park is set for Saturday, Nov. 13, at Daniel Island Waterfront Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Walking, biking, boating and golf carts are the preferred method of transportation to the park. Car parking is available but limited.
This fun, family and dog friendly event will have a farmers market feel. We have some vendors and sponsors on board and are actively seeking additional vendors/exhibitors and sponsors. Vendors and exhibitors already committed to attend include veterinary offices, pet stores, dog friendly turf, adoptions and more.
You can enjoy games, music and contests as vendors offer pet and dog wares.
Some of the activities planned for the day include: human/pet look-alike contest, face painting, best dressed dog costume contest, decorating animal treats, pet trick contest, raffle giveaways, and best dog/owner Instagram selfie of the day.
This will be a great opportunity to learn about local pet related businesses and to purchase Christmas gifts and other items for your favorite furry friends and family members. You may even adopt your very own dog!
Food will be available at The Dime.
Berkeley Animal Center, featured on pages 10-11 of this week’s edition, will be a beneficiary of Daniel Island’s first Bark in the Park event. They will also have pets available for adoption.
