Concerned Citizens For Animals will host its 30th annual Bark in the Park Festival on October 26. Their walk-a-thon starts at 10 a.m., with the main festival beginning at 11 a.m. Attendees are asked to meet at Greenville Technical College, located at 506 South Pleasantburg Drive in Greenville.
The event will last until 3 p.m., with perfect weather and a temperature of near 60 degrees predicted.
CCA promises this will be their biggest and best event ever!
They're pleased to announce the return of Red Creek Farm. Their Border Collies' herding demonstration is a well-known crowd pleaser. And CCA is also bringing back the high flyers from Disc Dogs of the Carolinas. The Clemson Kennel Club will be on hand to demonstrate the agility course, answering your questions and guiding your own dog through the course.
