Residents will have a few special hours to spend with their beloved dogs during the ninth annual Paws in the Park event on
Saturday, April 13, 2019, 11am-2pm.
The event will take place at Best Friend’s Dog Park located at 480 Lee Street, Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
Paws in the Park features a pet fashion show, vendors, food trucks, music from DJ Slammin, and more. Fetch N Fly, which specializes in dog training and dog sports, will perform.
Owners will have the opportunity to have their pets receive rabies shots or microchips at reduced prices.
Rabies tags are required, and dogs six months old and younger will not be allowed inside the fence.
Said Special Events Coordinator Kayla Hillman:
“We are also hosting an Easter egg hunt during the event for the dogs to participate in, so we hope everyone will bring their fur babies out to meet some new friends and hunt for some treats.”
Paws in the Park is sponsored by the city of Rocky Mount’s Parks & Recreation Department.
