GARDINER — Gardiner Main Street will host the 6th annual Barks in the Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 19.

The day will be filled with events, demonstrations and a dog walk through downtown Gardiner.

Rescue groups, vendors, Eastern Maine Agility, Fly Ball Dogz and the Maine State Police K9 unit will all be in attendance at the event.

The event is free with lots of activities dogs and their owners can participate in including several contests (best dog kiss, best costume and a look-alike contest), square dancing, and education about animal health and welfare.

Donations will be accepted on site for the development of a new dog park in Gardiner. To date, the Main Street organization has saved close to $3,000 in seed money to create a dog park.
