The Cincinnati Reds will be hosting their third annual Bark in the Park event. Bark in the Park allows you to enjoy the excitement of the Reds alongside your pat at Great American Ball Park. Special seating is reserved for pets and pet owners and the Fan Zone will turn into the "Dog Zone" with product samples and activities for both dogs and owners. The game begins at 7:10pm. Please note that the game and associated fun-times may continue well beyond 9:00pm - as usual, you are free to come/leave whenever you would like.
Dog Package (1 person, 1 dog): $32 each
Additional human ticket: $22 each
Rule of 1 dog per human owner. If you want to bring more than one dog, they must be accompanied by an adult handler.
Tickets will be available for pick-up approximately 2-hours before the scheduled game time (7:10PM). Pick up will be at the special "Bark in the Park" will-call table located outside of the Right Field Entrance at the corner of Joe Nuxhall Way and Mehring Way.
There will be a pre-game pet parade on the track surrounding the field and prizes awarded to the dog with the best tricks, the best Reds-dressed dog, and the smallest and largest dog. There will be a pet Expo with dogs available for adoption from the SPCA in Cinncinnati. For a donation to the SPCA, you can have your picture taken with your dog on a Reds backdrop.

I will have on my bright orange DDU shirt. It is not necessary for you to stay with the group, but I'd love for you to stop by and say hello :).
