Bark in the Park

Bark in the Park is back - and we're going wild! 

Help raise funds for CancerCare and enjoy a doggie day out at Lancaster's Williamson Park with our Sponsored Dog Walk, Fun Dog Show and activities for all the family.

This year's theme is 'Wild Animals' and we want to see your best fancy dress (on dogs and their owners!) Maybe your Labrador can be a Lion for the day? Or your Shih Tzu will become a Shark? Perhaps you'll take inspiration from the park itself, and don your Bichon Frise with Butterfly Wings or your Schnauzer with a Squirrel tail?

Plus there will be face-painters on hand to give kids (of all ages) a Wild Makeover too!
