FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- Baum Stadium's Hog Pen will turn into the "Dog Pen" on Tuesday (April 4), when Bark in the Park returns to Fayetteville.

The event is a night for Razorback baseball fans to take their dogs to the baseball park. There will be fun giveaways, plus a costume contest for the dog with the most Razorback spirit.

Purina is sponsoring the event, so each dog that comes will be given a collapsible water bowl and treats.

Kevin Trainor, assistant athletic director, said it's a great opportunity to combine people's passion for their dogs and baseball.

"We've had a really great response in years past," said Trainor. "People love being outdoors and love bringing their dogs with them."

Tickets are $8, which covers the dog plus its human. There is a limit of one dog per person and you must fill out a waiver.

Before heading to Bark in the Park, be sure your dog:

  • Is at least 6 months old
  • Up to date on vaccines
  • On a leash at all times.
  • Friendly to other dogs and people
  • Not allowed in stands, only Hog Pen
