Bark in the Park coming in April

The 2005 Bark in the Park celebration in Rio Rancho will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, on Saturday, April 30, at the Rio Rancho Sports Complex in High Resort.

Bark in the Park’s organizers are seeking sponsors, vendors, and organizations that would like to participate in the event. The sign-up deadline is April 15. Information and forms are available by calling Crystal McClernon, 306-0801, or online at

The theme for this year’s event is Play Ball—a favorite pastime of many a canine. Bark in the Park has already scheduled demonstrations in agility (an obstacle course competition), freestyling (dancing with your favorite canine), and carting (dogs pulling small carts)—to name a few. Organizations that would like to share their expertise through demonstrations or an information booth are invited to participate. Nonprofit booth space is available at no cost. Vendors offering products of interest to dogs and their owners are also welcome. Vendor booth spaces are available for $40. Food for two-legged and four-legged attendees will be available. The event is open to the general public and well-behaved leashed dogs. Adult admission is $5; children are admitted free.
