Fayetteville parks department hosts dog photo contest

The Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department invites residents to enter its “Best Bark in the Park” dog photo contest this month for a chance to win several prizes.

To enter, just take a photo of your dog at either Bryce Davis Park, Gulley Park, Walker Park, or Wilson Park and submit it using the city’s online submission form.

From the city:

Contestants and canines will be judged by appearance, charisma, expression, creative use of the park setting, and that “special something” by members of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board.

To be eligible, entries must be submitted by Fayetteville residents who are at least 18 years old. Only one submission per person is allowed.

Prizes include a free exam and grooming from Animal Medical Clinic (1st place), a gift pack from Pack Rat Outdoor Center (2nd place) and a $10 gift card from Bliss Cupcakes (3rd place).
