Pull out your tutu – and your dog’s matching one – and head down to Memorial Park this Saturday, February 24, for Bark in the Park.

This two and four-legged social event is a great way to meet other dog owners in a fun, sunny environment.

“This an event that brings the Tauranga dog community together to enjoy a day out and the opportunity to check out a range of local businesses selling doggie-related items," says Tauranga City Council animal services team leader Brent Lincoln.

“At our first event in 2022, we saw some amazing costumes – and we can’t wait to see what creative outfits you come up with this year.”

Brent and the team encourage dogs and their owners to dress up in their best party outfits – or even like each other.

With food trucks, local dog rescues, educational booths, giveaways, prizes, dog play areas and plenty of other activities for you and your furry friend, Bark in the Park is set to be a fun day out.

So head to Memorial Park (Jordan Field) on Saturday, February 24, from 10am-2pm.
