The event, hosted by the Poway Kiwanis Club and the Poway News Chieftain, features a dog show with numerous categories, free fun events and activities, pet vendor booths and more. Funds raised from Bark at the Park will benefit Rady Children’s Hospital and high school scholarship programs. “We were trying to figure out what everyone would enjoy,” said David McKenzie of Kiwanis, about the club hosting the dog show event. “Dogs are the common denominator that everyone loves.” Now in its fourth year, McKenzie said the event is getting “bigger and better,” and he expects to draw a crowd equal to last year’s event, which saw 300 dogs and over 1,000 human visitors. The dog show contests start at 11 a.m., and will feature Poway mayor Don Higginson as the special celebrity judge.
