Second Annual ‘Bark in the Park’ slated for Saturday


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Noble Park in Sylacauga will play host to MainStreet Family Urgent Care’s ‘Bark in the Park’ on Saturday.

The event sponsored by MainStreet Family Urgent Care,, YEA!106.5, 98.3 Fox FM, Sylacauga Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Sylacauga, is a benefit for the Sylacauga Animal Shelter.

We are proud to support our local community by hosting a family friendly event that will benefit our local animal shelter,” said Kelly Hamm, the community coordinator for MainStreet Family Urgent Care. “This is the second annual ‘Bark in the Park’ and it’s already bigger and better than last year.”

The local shelter runs at or near full capacity around the clock. To help lower the population of animals at the shelter, pets will be up for adoption in Noble Park on Saturday. Kennel technician at the shelter Connie Willette recently told animals adoption fees will be discounted on Saturday.

The 2016 event saw record numbers in terms of adoptions. ‘Bark in the Park’ was able to produce an entire month’s worth of adoptions in a matter of hours.

Many vendors will be set up throughout the park along with inflatables and fun for children. You can also bring your pets from home and let them enjoy the company of other animals. In addition to a day’s worth of family and animal fun, the event play host to a pet parade and a pet costume contest.

“So many community partners have rallied together with us to make this event fun for the entire family and we certainly couldn’t have made it a success without their help,” said Hamm. “It really is amazing to see our community coming together for a common cause, and MainStreet is honored to be a part of this community. We hope all of our neighbors, friends, and family are as excited as we are about getting to spend a day in the park to raise funds for a great cause.”

“We are proud to partner with MainStreet Family Urgent Care in this endeavor,” said Managing Editor of and Director of Business Development of Marble City Media Michael Brannon. “‘Bark in the Park’ was a huge success last year. We are looking forward to helping the shelter and the animals currently calling it their home on Saturday.”

‘Bark in the Park’ will begin at 11:00 a.m. Saturday and run until 3:00 in the afternoon. 98.3 Fox FM will be broadcasting live with chances to win prizes.
