9-29-20 Calling All Dogs to Barktoberfest October 10

Free fun for you and your furry friend!

Barktoberfest, Killeen’s signature dog event, is scheduled October 10. This year’s event features a change of venue and new activities, but it remains free and open to the public.

The Pooch Pageant will be virtual with submissions and voting online. Contestants can be entered in one or multiple categories which include best costume, twins, ugliest, smallest and hairiest dog. To enter, submit photos by October 5 to yvalderrama-santana@killeentexas.gov. Winners will be announced October 10.

A virtual fun run/walk is at the Andy K. Wells Hike & Bike Trail. All participants will complete the same course but can run or walk it at any time between October 3 and 11. Participants must compete as a team with a dog or dogs. If one doesn’t have a dog, dogs will be available to borrow from Killeen Animal Shelter. Registration is free and should be completed for each four-legged racer in order to receive a race bag and door prize entries.

In-person Barktoberfest activities are scheduled October 10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Killeen Animal Shelter. Activities for people and pups include a photo booth, play areas and door prizes. The Shelter will also be offering pets for adoption and accepting donations.
