2020 Bark Before Dark Halloween Pawty

October 27th - 29th, 2020
Multiple Locations

City of Des Moines dog park permit holders are invited to the Bark Before Dark Halloween Pawty! Each registered dog will receive a goodie bag and the opportunity to run about the park with different Halloween activities. All registered dogs will be entered in to the costume contest to win a free 2021 Dog Park Permit.

Annual permit is required to be worn by dog owners or handlers and visible at all times inside the facility. You will be asked to show your permit when you enter the dog park. All dog park rules apply for this event.

We ask that no more than two owners/handlers per dog are present at the event for social distancing purposes. We ask that owners/handlers wear proper face coverings recommended by the CDC. Children under the age of 10 are not allowed within the facility and those ages 10 to 15 must be accompanied by a person age 18 or older.

We will be looking for volunteer to help facilitate check in, handing out goodie bags, the photos, and floating around the park. A volunteer background check will be required for this event, you can find it on the sign up page.

As you will be interacting with crowds during a shift we ask that you keep your facemask on at all times. We will have extras just in case and will provide hand sanitizer for all volunteers.

There are no shifts available at this time.
