Free unleashed fun for dog lovers and pooches of all sizes when historic Cotton Bowl field transforms into a dog park complete with splash pools, a pet/owner look-alike contest and more for an all-around tail-wagging time
Sunday, May 4, 2014 1 - 5 p.m.
Cotton Bowl Stadium at Fair Park
3750 Cotton Bowl Circle, Dallas, TX 75210
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Spoil your four-legged fur ball with an afternoon of doggy delights at Fair Park’s Cotton Bowl Stadium for the free, eighth-annual Dog Bowl from 1 - 5 p.m. Sunday, May 4. Dallas’ most historic football field will transform into a super-sized dog park for canines of all sizes to romp and run unleashed!
Enjoy pooch-pleasers including a pet/owner look-alike contest, giveaways, exhibits, pooch portraits and more. (Please note: A nominal fee applies for pooch portraits.) Talk to trainers, veterinarians and pet product vendors, and learn the latest tips and trends in the tail-wagging world. And check out local dog clubs, rescue groups and animal welfare organizations with adoptable dogs at the “tail”-gating zone outside the entrance gate of the Cotton Bowl.
Misting ponds and giant “dip and sip” splash bowls will keep canines cool and quenched, while humans will have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments (including beer) and other concessions.
Admission is free. For the Dog Bowl, the City of Dallas will charge $5 for parking within the gates of Fair Park. You can also ride the DART Rail Green Line to the Fair Park Station. (Non-service animals are allowed on DART only if they are in crates.) Owners will be asked to observe all current City of Dallas Dog Park policies while at Fair Park.
