Mark Your Calendar For Barkapalooza This Sunday!

Hi it’s Leslie Harris, and if you know anything about me, you know that I am a big animal lover, and I volunteer a lot of my time with rescuing companion animals. One of the organizations that I volunteer for is the West Suburban Humane Society in Downers Grove, and we’re having a really fun event this Sunday, September 24th.

It’s the 30th annual Barkapalooza, and it’s bigger and better than ever. There’s going to be something for everyone. The morning kicks off at 8:00 a.m. with a chip-timed 5K run/Walk. There’s also a 2K family fun walk, and then the real fun begins with Rescue Fest.

We’ll have a pet blessing, a pet costume parade, the Barkminster dog show with categories like dog and owner look alike, waggiest tail, silliest tricks, best in talking/speaking, and funniest ears. We’ll also have adoptable dogs from the West Suburban Humane society, as well as breed specific rescue groups. Maybe you’ll find your new best friend.

So grab your whole family, including your dogs, and join me this Sunday at the Lisle Community park, 1825 Short Street in Lisle for Barkapalooza 2023! You can get more information, as well as register for the walk/run HERE
