Bring your doggo(s) to Great American Ball Park on Monday when the Reds take on the Houston Astros.

There will be a pre-game pet parade, which will begin 40 minutes prior to the first pitch, freebies and discounts from dog-related vendors and a chance to meet and adopt SPCA Cincinnati’s dogs. The parade line starts by the wiffle ball field 15 minutes prior to parade launch.

You and your furry friend can even experience the first fetch and hang out in the Kroger Fan Zone.

Note per the Reds: "You are required to sign a waiver stating your dog's vaccinations from a licensed veterinarian are current. To expedite this process, print and sign the waiver to have ready upon entering the ballpark. This waiver holds you (the owner) liable in the event of any incident. We recommend you contact your veterinarian regarding other vaccinations that may suit your dog's needs. One waiver must be signed per dog and per each game, even if you have already attended a BITP game earlier in the year."

All dogs must be leashed and enter through Gate 1, located on the corner of Joe Nuxhall and Mehring ways. Bark in the Park tickets are for sections 136-139.

5:40 p.m. parade; 7:10 p.m. first pitch. $50 for single-game packages, which includes one dog ticket and one human ticket; additional human tickets can be purchased for $30; additional dog tickets can be purchased for $20; there must be at least one human ticket for every dog ticket purchased. Great American Ball Park, 100 Joe Nuxhall Way, Downtown, reds.com/bark.
