     Mark your calendar for Barktoberfest on Saturday, November 6th from 1-4 PM at the Bark Park, 2717 Tait Terrace in Norfolk.  Barktoberfest is hosted by the Ballentine Civic League and is open to the public, with proceeds benefitting the dog park in Ballentine Place.

     You and your dog can compete in games and costume contests, or just stroll around and meet the vendors.  If you don’t have a dog to bring, visit the participating rescue groups to inquire about pet adoption.

     And this is your chance to meet some of the hardest-working animals in town:  rescue dogs, special needs dogs and therapy dogs.  Find out what it takes to train one of these special companions!

     Proceeds from Barktoberfest will be used to enhance the Bark Park.  Funds raised by the rescue groups will stay with those groups.
