You’ve heard of the teddy bear’s picnic, right? Well, now it’s the dogs of Newcastle who will get their chance for a great day out.
That’s right, King Edward Park will be inundated with four-legged friends of all shapes and sizes next month for Bark In The Park.
Bark In The Park is a long table picnic event organised by Dog Rescue Newcastle (DRN), in conjunction with Belles and Whistles Picnics for all pooches and their owners, to raise much-needed funds for DRN.
The day will feature a delicious picnic lunch, an array of dog-friendly fun and games and a chance to get to know some of the cutest pups in town.
Tickets are $40per person and include your lunch and non-alcoholic beverages. All dietary requirements can be catered to.
There will also be a bake sale on the day that will also assist fundraising efforts for DRN.
Since its formation in 2008, DRN has re-homed more than 6000 dogs and 600 cats placing them in temporary foster care until they can be permanently rehomed.
While they are based in Newcastle, DRN rescue dogs from all over eastern NSW including the Central Coast, Taree and Mudgee.
The Bark In The Park will be on at the King Edward Park Rotunda from 2pm on Saturday 17 August.
