The Humane Society of Missouri and Purina® present Bark in the Park, the largest dog festival in the Midwest! The annual event will be held Saturday, May 17, 9am – 1pm at Cricket Field in Forest Park.

Tim Ezell, animal lover and popular TV personality from KTVI, will serve as the roving reporter for this year’s Bark in the Park and will be taking the first-ever…

Event-goers can be part of history by smiling with Tim, their favorite pooch and thousands of their four-legged friends. Once taken, the Humane Society of Missouri will tweet it out via their Twitter handle (@HSMO) and encourage their fans to help raise awareness of the Animal Cruelty Fund by re-tweeting the image. Those interested in being part of one of the largest, cutest and furriest selfies should meet by the Walk Start at 10 a.m.

The smiles continue at the doggie photo booth where you, along with your best friend can show off your playful personalities, dress up and have your photo snapped.
