Hot Date: Cotton Bowl Becomes Dog Bowl Dog Park on Saturday, April 7
“Enjoy pooch-pleasing pastimes including a pet/owner look-alike contest, giveaways, exhibits, pooch portraits, canine crafts, music by Dallas’ seasoned jazz bassist Barri Pearson, and more. (Please note: A nominal fee applies for pooch portraits and crafts.),” writes a Dog Bowl spokesman.
“Talk to trainers, veterinarians and pet product vendors, and learn the latest tips and trends in the tail-wagging world, plus take advantage of special pricing on vaccinations and microchipping thanks to Luv My Pet. And check out local dog clubs, rescue groups and animal welfare organizations with adoptable dogs at the Woofstock ‘tail’ gating zone outside the entrance gate of the Cotton Bowl.
“Misting ponds and giant ‘dip and sip’ splash bowls will keep canines cool and quenched, while humans will have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments (including beer) and other concessions.
Admission is free. The City of Dallas charges $10 for parking within the gates of Fair Park, or ride the DART Rail Green Line to the Fair Park Station. (Non-service animals are allowed on DART only if they are in crates.) Owners will be asked to observe all current City of Dallas Dog Park policies while at Fair Park.
Dog Bowl is hosted by Friends of Fair Park, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
