Barktoberfest October 1-2, 2011

On Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7, the Placer SPCA held our 3rd Annual Barktoberfest. This event just gets busier and better!

A champagne welcome greeted our guests attending Barks and Bids. The event had a fantastic turn-out and both dogs and their parents left with grins from ear to ear. Thanks to all the fantastic local beverage and food purveyors who helped make the night memorable!

At the Barktoberfest Family Festival the parade line stretched for half a mile! The day featured the crowning of the Barktoberfest Royal Court, lots of fun doggy activities, and over 60 unique vendors.

We would like to give a special thanks to our event hosts, Mercedes Benze of Rocklin hosted Barks & Bids on Saturday, and Telefunken Semiconductors hosted the Barktoberfest Family Festival on Sunday.

Barktoberfest would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, purveryors, vendors, volunteers, and other participants. Thank you!
