If your Shih Tzu is a superfan, get ready to celebrate. The Durham Bulls open their gates to canines of all stripes at Bark in the Park at the Aug. 12 game against the Norfolk Tides. This special event for the four-legged set features a section just for dogs and their companions – and special pricing for the hounds. The grandstands will be howling. Imagine the excitement of your saint bernard when he has the chance to keep score “in person” – or should that be “in dog”? In any case, labradoodles, goldendoodles, and doodles of all kinds will be sure to be scribbling on their scorecards.
It’s worth getting your hound there on the early side, because the first 1,000 dogs get a free “pet bandana” from the VCA Animal Hospital. All proceeds from the $5 dog ticket price will go to Second Chance Pet Adoptions.
Human tickets: $6.99. Dog tickets: $5. For more information, go to DurhamBulls.com.
