Bark in the Park Night is Back!

Posted by SusanStokes on July 24, 2021

After a long hiatus due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in early 2020, Bark in the Park Night returned to the TD Bank Ballpark for the Somerset Patriots 2021 Season, much to the delight of dog owners and sports fans.

July 22nd was the first of three scheduled Bark in the Park Nights, and dog owners came out in big numbers with their pooch in tow. The Yankees Double-A affiliate team did not disappoint with a lively game against their opponent that began at 7:05 pm.

The ballpark welcomed well-behaved, socialized dogs on leash who were happy to greet other dog friends and enjoy the excitement of the evening. Dog owners checked-in at a table outside the main gate, and the excitement was contagious amongst canines and humans alike.

Vendors included local 24/7 Emergency Veterinary Clinics and baked dog goodies. Fans flocked to the tables for doggie give-aways and contest opportunities.

Canines were treated to ice cream during the traditional Yappy Hour, and water trays were located along the concourse for thirsty pets trying to beat the heat while enjoying their special night out.

The one thing missing was the Pooch Parade. Perhaps that’s something to look forward to in the future.

Two more Bark in the Park Nights are scheduled for August 24th and September 7th, 2021. All games are set to begin at 7:05 pm.
