Barktoberfest, Killeen’s signature dog event, is back October 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a new location, Mickey’s Dog Park. The event is free and open to the public.
Free activities will include off leash play areas for large and small dogs, an obedience course and pet friendly vendors. The fan favorite Pooch Pageant will crown winners for best trick, best costume and look-alike.
Relocation of the event will highlight Mickey’s Dog Park, located next to Killeen Community Center, which opened in 2015 and was made possible through public-private partnership. Mickey’s Convenience Stores provide $50,000 in funding to bring the amenity to Killeen.
