Where Every Family Matters

Register Now for Pooch-A-Palooza!

See a variety of dogs perform their best tricks during the annual Pooch-A-Palooza!

Kids, do you have the best dog around? Prove it! Sign up for Williamson County Parks and Recreation's (WCPR) Second Annual Dog Show and Expo “Pooch-A-Palooza.” This fun, family event takes place at the Nolensville Bark Park (Nolensville Park Road) on Saturday, March 30 from 12 – 3 p.m. There is a $10 participation fee for doggies, but the event is free to come and watch. Think yours can strut his stuff in a performance of showmanship? See how well he does (and possibly win a prize) in one of several competitions including:

  • Best Costume: Dress up your pooch in their best outfit and show them off on stage.
  • Best Trick: Have your best friend show off their coolest trick.
  • Best Retriever: A staff member will throw a ball or frisbee for your dog to retrieve.
  • Best Bark: Have your pooch show off their bark.

Other Activities
