Bark in the Dark's 10th anniversary looks a little different, promising to focus on the favorite part of the party-- the pups! Join FOX 17 and The Humane Society of West Michigan on October 1st from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. for everything dog-tastic. Food, brews, live music, and dozens of dogs dressed to the nines will fill Riverside Park in Grand Rapids— plus our Kevin Craig is a spokesperson for the event!

Tickets are $35 for adults, $10 for ages 5-17, and kids 4 and under are free. Adult tickets include a wag bag filled with goodies for you and your furry friend from our generous sponsors and (for the over 21 crowd) a beverage ticket for the beer tent! Tickets are required for everyone attending the event.

All proceeds from this event benefit animals in need at Humane Society of West Michigan as a 100% donor-funded 501(c)3 nonprofit that promotes the humane treatment and responsible care of animals in West Michigan through education, example, placement, and protection.
