Bark In The Park
Saturday, March 7, 10 am – 2 pm
Cornerstone Park, 1600 Wigwam Parkway
Bring your two-legged and four-legged family members to the 12th annual Bark In the Park at Cornerstone Park. There will be demonstrations by the Henderson Police Department K-9 Unit, vendor booths, fun contests, and other informational booths. If you want to add a furry family member, you can meet lots of adorable dogs looking for “forever” homes. Remember that all pets must be leashed, handlers must be at least 10 years old, and owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets!
And don’t forget to look for the Inspirada booth while you’re there!
