Bark in the Park is set for Saturday, May 18, at the Hilde Performance Center in Plymouth. Dogs and their owners are encouraged to join in the tail-wagging fun.

Back for its fourth year, Plymouth’s all-about-dogs event is set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at the Hilde Performance Center, 3500 Plymouth Blvd.

The free Bark in the Park event features dog products, dog yoga, rescue organizations, “pup-arazzi” photo booth, dog-balloon artist, face painting, demonstrations, food and pet supply vendors, small dog races, food trucks and a children’s scavenger hunt.

Event will include the Twin City Disc Dog Competition and mini dog races for dogs 20 pounds or less from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Doga sessions (dog yoga) at 10:30 a.m.; and Paws Abilities dog sports demonstrations at 11:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.

Dog yoga is a partner class for owners and their dogs.

Twin Cities Disc Dog will have a competition throughout the event. Dogs and their throwers compete in events such as distance catching and choreographed freestyle catching.

The small dog race course will be open to all dogs weighing 20 pounds or less that want to race fellow canines of similar size.

Attendees should bring cash for vendors, products and food trucks. Attendees may also pick up a free Bark in the Park food scoop or tote bag while supplies last.

Dogs must be leashed at the event. Attendees may use the hashtag #PlymouthBarks to share photos of the fun and have a chance to be retweeted by the city.
