San Jose Bark in the Park Festival is One for the Dogs

September 9, 2016


Dog lovers in the North Bay region, rejoice, it’s time once again for Bark in the Park, one of the best dog events around. Saturday, September 17, 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of this festival of dogs, the biggest of its kind in the United States. You can join 15,000 dog lovers among 3,900 canine friends at the William Street Park, from 10:00 am- 5:00 pm for a day of dog-gone-fun.

Bark at the Park is a day full of canine contests. Anyone can enter for some fun prizes in the Dog Costume, Pet/Owner Look-a-like, or Happiest Tail Wagging contests. These fun activities are among festival favorites alongside agility showcases and specialized dog training demonstrations. There will also be plenty of food and drink on hand for “two-leggers” and those with four paws. Is your best friend ready for a new toy, or perhaps you are on the hunt for a groomer? You can stop by over 75 vendor booths during the festival, each one with products and services just for dogs and their human companions.

For each dog, there is a $5.00 registration donation request, but more will gladly be accepted. Doggie Poop bags will be available at the gates, and festival organizers ask that you pick up after your pet. While parking in the neighborhood is available, it is limited. Public transport and carpooling are encouraged.

Best of all, from my point of view, Bark in the Park is all about helping pets. Proceeds raised from the festival are given to local pet-focused organizations and community programs. For the organizers, Naglee Park Campus Community Neighborhood Association, Bark in the Park is their premier annual event, showcasing joint community efforts to promote community spirit, including our furry friends. This year’s event will also benefit Humane Society Silicon Valley and San Jose Animal Care Center, two pet organizations worth learning more about.

Not only do I love dogs, I am an avid animal lover, and when our communities support pets too, we can all benefit. My clients are also a part of my community, and I am ready to support through you the real-estate process. When you are ready to sell your home, my team and I are ready to help you every step of the way. Our goal is to make your experience both easy and pleasurable.
