WINNIPEG, MB - One of the most anticipated nights for the Goldeyes, "Bark in the Park", is returning this season and Winnipeg is going for the World Record.
The Goldeyes and Winnipeg Veterinary Care Group are working together on the third annual "Bark in the Park" night at Shaw Park on Saturday, June 9th when the Goldeyes will play, get ready for it, the Chicago Dogs - yes the Chicago Dogs at 6:05 p.m.
Bark in the Park is a special dog-friendly baseball game where fans are invited to bring their dogs to watch a Goldeyes game. This year’s game is taking things to another level with further expanded ballpark seating plus a second shot at an official Guinness World Records title attempt. The current Guinness World Records title for Most Dogs Attending a Sporting Event is 1,122 dogs, achieved by the Chicago White Sox in 2016. Last season the Goldeyes were only 271 dogs short of the Guinness World Record.
"Bark in the Park has definitely proven to be a Goldeyes fan favourite," said Winnipeg Goldeyes' President and CEO Sam Katz. "And this year our fans and their dogs can be a part of history by helping us break a Guinness World Records title while also helping to support local dog rescue groups."
"Bark in the Park" will showcase a number of promotions at the game including a pre-game, on-field “Pooch Parade”, the Pooch Smooch Cam and 7th Inning Fetch.
Fans and their four-legged friends will enter Shaw Park through a special gate reserved just for them. There will even be designated "Puppy Potty" turf areas located by the registration tent and in the Goldeyes Picnic Park.
Presale of ticket packages and additional single tickets are available online only through Ticketmaster.ca.
