2009 Bark in the Park features Cirque Du Solei’s Wintuk

2009-bark-in-the-park-cirque-du-soleilThe annual Bark in the Park is the can’t-be-missed event of the year for all dogs and dog lovers! This year’s event will be more fun than ever with Cirque du Soleil’s WINTUK characters adding their special joy to start the festivities. In addition, free micro chipping will be available if you register early, an important and valuable service to protect your furry best friend should he ever be lost or stolen.

The 2009 Bark in the Park Dog Walk will be held on Sunday, October 11, 2009, on the South Lawn of Liberty State Park (immediately behind the historic Rail Terminal). If it rains, the event will move inside the Terminal which is located just off Audrey Zapp Drive. Festivities kick off at 11 a.m. and go until 3 p.m.

Adults and children are invited to bring their dogs for a day of fun, music and food. The characters from Cirque du Soleil’s WINTUK will kick off a non-competitive, two-mile dog walk at the start of the day’s fun. Decked out in the wintry colors of WINTUK, the quartet of joyful ambassadors will be a feast for the eyes and they will stilt-walk, play and clown their way into the hearts of young and old alike.


Come and meet the WINTUK ambassadors; interact with them as they stop by Bark in the Park on their travels. You might walk away with promotional items…or even tickets to their show. But you’ll definitely walk away with a smile and great memories!! WINTUK opens soon at Madison Square Garden’s WAMU Theatre.

People participating in the dog walk are encouraged to enlist sponsors to help support Liberty Humane Society. The top three fundraisers will receive prizes, and the top female or top male canine raising the highest pledge totals will be crowned Lord or Lady Liberty of Bark in the Park! Besides the dog walk, the day’s activities will include dog competitions and dog agility demos along with a full day of music, food, shopping, and entertainment.

Pre-registration is $15 per adult and includes one dog ($5 for a second dog with a limit of 2 dogs per person). Children under 18 are free. Please go to to register online. Dogs who register early will be given free micro chipping, an important safeguard for your family’s four-legged members should they ever become lost or stolen. The cost to register at the event will be $20. For additional information, please call (201) 547-4147 or email

All proceeds from the 2009 Bark in the Park Dog Walk will go to Liberty Humane Society, located at 235 Jersey City Boulevard in Jersey City. Liberty Humane Society is celebrating its tenth year of providing shelter and care to the city’s homeless and abandoned animals.
