Story and photography by Megan Venable

The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley held its annual Bark in the Park on the lawn of the World’s Fair Park, and hosted an array of four-legged friends and their accompanying humans. Halloween was the theme, and many of the doggos stepped out in spooktacular style. The free event featured local vendors, food trucks, costume contests for humans and their furry companions, a kids party area and adult games like giant Jenga. The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley has worked hard throughout its existence to be at the forefront of animal welfare.
