Spend the day outside with your four-legged friends and help raise funds for the Humane Society of Tampa Bay on Saturday, March 23. The 32nd Annual Bark in the Park will take place along the Hillsborough River, right in the heart of downtown Tampa at Curtis Hixon Park.  Attendees will enjoy food trucks, libations, music, vendors, dog costume contests, the dog agility zone, adoptables, a VIP tent with mimosas and sweets, the pop up dog park and, of course, our mile-long Walk for the Animals along the beautiful river. Proceeds will provide shelter, food, spay/neuter services, and medical care for thousands of animals relinquished to the shelter each year.  Event will take place rain or shine.

Start the celebration early by forming a pack and fundraising for the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.  There are different ways to register, including creating or joining a pack to raise money together and then walk for the animals.
Non-fundraising participants can register at the door for a $20 suggested donation. Includes access to all attractions, 1-mile walk, and an event t-shirt. Children under 12 and dogs are free.
