Don't want to run? Don't worry! Bark in the Dark is so much more than a race! Featuring a dog costume contest, beer tent, local food trucks, music, and sponsor and activity booths - feel free to skip the run and just come for the fun!
Online ticket sales are now closed! You can still join us for Bark in the Dark by registering onsite at Riverside Park beginning at 5pm.
Tickets are $35 for adults, $10 for ages 5-17, and kids 4 and under are free. Adult tickets include a wag bag filled with goodies for you and your furry friend from our generous sponsors and (for the over 21 crowd) a beverage ticket for the beer tent! Tickets are required for everyone attending the event regardless of if they are participating in the run/walk portion or not.
All proceeds from this event benefit animals in need at Humane Society of West Michigan as a 100% donor-funded 501(c)3 nonprofit that promotes the humane treatment and responsible care of animals in West Michigan through education, example, placement, and protection.
Our goal for Bark in the Dark is to raise $90,000! This year, more than ever, we need your help - please help us reach that goal by making a donation today!
