Enjoy memorable events for the whole family at Alamar. We’re excited to present two Free City of Avondale Parks & Recreation events at Alamar Park during October. These community events are dog and family-friendly, open to the public, and free to attend.
First is Barks & Treats, a family and dog-friendly celebration set to take place at the picturesque Alamar Park. This event is free to the public and will take place on Saturday, October 7th from 9 AM to 11 AM. Families are encouraged to bring their four-legged companions to Alamar Park’s dedicated dog park to witness furry friends relishing in delectable treats, capturing endearing poses in the pup-photo opportunities set against the Barks & Treats backdrop, and flaunting unique personalities in a spirited costume contest starting at 9:45 AM.
