We humans really don't deserve dogs. They're so loving and loyal yet we tend to forget to take our fur buddies and babies out for some fun every once and awhile. You can change that by bringing them out to Barktoberfest this year!

Killeen’s signature dog event, Barktoberfest happens October 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mickey’s Dog Park located at 2201 East Veterans Memorial Boulevard next to the Killeen Community Center. This event is free and open to the public and features free activities including off leash play areas for large and small dogs, an obedience course and pet friendly vendors. And enter your doggie into the Pooch Pageant where winners will be crowned for best trick, best costume and look-alike.
