Paws in the Park

For a quarter of a century, Pearland residents have celebrated their canine friends with Paws in the Park, an annual event that encourages residents to get outside with their dogs, enjoy the fresh air and meet other people in the community who put their pooches on a pedestal. The event is scheduled this year from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 30 at the Sports Complex at Shadow Creek Ranch, 13050 Shadow Creek Parkway. The event kicks off at 8 a.m. with a 1K run/walk for kids along with 3K and 5K races. Dogs are allowed at any of these races, but participants don’t have to run with a pet. Registration is $15 for the 1K run/walk for ages 14 and under costs $15. The 3K and 5K run/walks cost $20. Proceeds from race registration goes to fund other events put on by the Parks and Recreation Department. Activities will include stage demonstrations, pet exhibitors, food vendors, an obstacle course and opportunity for pet adoptions. Pets must remain on a leash throughout the event.
