2021 Bark Before Dark Halloween Pawty

October 26th - 28th, 2021
Various 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 into the costume contest to win a free 2022 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.

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 volunteers 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.

In order to comply with emergency proclamations by the Governor or Mayor, as such may be amended from time to time, and as public health guidelines evolve, for the safety of staff and the public, the Parks and Recreation Department reserves the right to cancel at any time. In addition, the Department reserves the right to change the registration requirements at any time. The Department will contact the volunteers as soon as reasonably possible with such cancellation or changes.

The City of Des Moines cannot guarantee that the volunteer or any of the event attendees will not become infected with COVID-19. Volunteers and attendees use the City’s facility at their own risk.

There are no shifts available at this time.
