Rescheduled: T-Storms' Threat Pushes Bark in the Park to New Fall Date

Concord’s White Park still going to the dogs…in September

With a weekend weather forecast predicting thunderstorms and significant cold rain, the Concord Public Safety Foundation’s Board of Directors elected to move the 2nd Annual Bark in the Park: Canines for K-9 to a new September date.  The decision was difficult to reach, but safety of canine and human attendees was paramount.  The event will remain at Concord’s White Park, with the fall date to be announced soon.

Community members will still have an opportunity to meet K-9 working dog Fanto this spring, ask questions of Sgt. Nick Hodgen, Fanto’s handler from the Hillsboro Police Department, and see local notables don the bite suit for Fanto’s demonstrations.  An indoor event is being planned for May in Concord.

The Concord Public Safety Foundation is grateful for the unwavering support of sponsors, vendors, exhibitors, and past attendees – learn more about plans for K-9 Meet + Greet, 2nd Annual Bark in the Park, and the 3rd Annual Fire Truck Pull on July 19th by visiting facebook.com/ConcordPublicSafety

The nonprofit all-volunteer Concord Public Safety Foundation’s mission is to obtain and grant funding for public safety initiatives, advocate for measures to strengthen public safety, and assist with communicating public safety messaging while connecting the Concord community to local resources.

What a howling shame.

Kim, Is White Park so booked they couldn't reschedule this outdoor event until September? Doesn't sound right.

Our challenge actually wasn't securing White Park sooner, rather it was coordinating the next open date when our many exhibitors, key volunteers, dog programming groups + vendors were all available. We've landed on a Sat. date in Sept., with a rain date the following Sat. - just awaiting final word re: park availability before announcing. Thanks so much for your interest; hope you can join us next month for the K-9 Meet + Greet + Demo (date to be announced this week) + also in Sept.
