Come one, come all to the Placer SPCA's 7th Annual Barktoberfest, a festival for canines and their well-behaved human companions on Sunday, October 8th.
The event will kick-off with a 2.5/5K Fun Run at Maidu Park in Roseville. Leashed companions are welcome to participate, too!* Following the race will be a community festival with food trucks, dog-friendly activities (including the Best Pet Trick contest), entertainment, and biergarten.
Don't forget to DRESS UP! We encourage all attendees — whether you participate in the Fun Run or not — to dress-up for Barktoberfest. At 10:30 am there will be a costume contest in front of the Eagle radio booth. Awards will be given to:
Best Oktoberfest-themed Costume (for dog or human)
Best Dog Costume
Best Individual Human Costume
Best Team/Couple Costume
*Please note: There is a 2 dog maximum per adult entry and all dogs must be on a leash.
