Barktoberfest, an event revolving around dogs, will take place on Oct. 9 at Jackie's Brickhouse Bar and Grill, 1053 Marina Bay Drive, Kemah.
The event will last from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will include multiple activities, such as a parade of adoptable dogs from Bay Area Pet Adoptions, microchipping, vaccinations, live music, a magic show, pet competitions, local vendors, a silent auction and raffle prizes, according to the event’s website. Same-day adoptions of the dogs will not be allowed.
Dog owners will be allowed to bring their own canines to the event to enjoy the afternoon at Marina Bay Drive. Admission to Barktoberfest will be free, and proceeds generated from the event will help Bay Area Pet Adoptions, a nonprofit no-kill shelter.
