There will be a few barks in the park today.

Game Farm Park comes alive with Auburn’s inaugural 3K Dog Trot Fun Run/Walk and Petpalooza, a family-oriented pet festival presented by the Auburn Parks, Arts and Recreation Department.

The day begins with a 9 a.m. run/walk for pets and their owners at the park, 3030 R St. S.E., Auburn. The 1.86-mile course is flat, easy and enjoyable for all ages and ability levels.

The run, sponsored by 100.7 The Wolf, Tiki Tails Dog Salon and Reber Ranch, will be taking registration today at $20 per entry.
