The event — which is sponsored by — is expected to pull in over 500 people (we didn’t get a canine count) and there will be over 25 vendors including the Bentonville K9 unit. (Click here to see a list of vendors.)

The highlight? A “Howl-A-Ween” dog costume contest from noon to 1!

The park, on North Walton Boulevard, has 1.3 acres of fenced lawns, trees and benches. There’s a side for bigs and a side for littles. We’re particularly partial to the cute “relief stations” like the one pictured at right.

Enjoy the dog park and maybe your pooch will win in the costume contest!
