It all concludes Sunday with Bark in the Park Day presented by Blackbird’s Bowl, Natural Pet Foods & More. Bring your dog to the yard! Tickets are only $5 for a spot on the berm and there’s no extra charge for your dog. Don’t worry fans; the Slammers will have plenty of water available for your dog! First pitch is at 2:05 p.m. and the gates open at 1:05 p.m. Make sure you arrive early as the Slammers are giving away a team photo courtesy of Signs by Tomorrow Plainfield to the first 1000 fans through the gates.
“What better way to spend a summer day, than drinking an icy cold one while watching a ball game with your dog,” said Blackbird’s Bowl’s owner and wellness consultant, Tammi Janel.
When you take a break to grab a hot dog, don’t forget to grab one of Blackbird’s dehydrated chews for your dog. You can find everything from dehydrated duck feet to peanut butter biscuits at the two locations on the concourse near each grass berm. Blackbird’s Bowl will have their famous Barkery Treats available that are all wheat, corn and soy free, with completely grain free options as well. You can also find their raffle table near the main entrance. Stop by and enter for a chance to win a prize for your lucky dog.
Does your dog have an awesome bark or howl? Bring them out to “Bark in the Park” for a chance to win a gift certificate to Blackbird’s Bowl. Prior to the game, Blackbird’s Bowl will pick three dogs to compete during a between inning game for the most interesting bark. The crowd will decide the winner and that dog will bring home the grand prize! To enter the contest, email a video of your dog’s remarkable bark to email@example.com. The three contestants will be chosen by August 15th and will receive two free tickets to the game.
