The Cincinnati Reds are welcoming their furry, four-legged fans to the stadium this Saturday for a special Bark in the Park event.

While previous Bark in the Parks have invited dogs into the actual stands to watch the game, this weekend's new take focuses on a morning pet parade around the warning track at Great American Ball Park, plus a Pet Expo and a professional photo op at home plate.

Starting at 10 a.m. Sept. 25, good, leashed dogs who are up-to-date on their shots can line up at Gate I at the corner of Joe Nuxhall and Mehring Way downtown. Each dog must be accompanied by at least one human, and owners must sign a liability waiver before entering Great American Ball Park (it's available to print online).

The event runs until noon and the $25-per-person Bark in the Park package also includes access to one of the Reds vs. Nationals games held Sept. 23-26. Dogs are not permitted at these games, only people.

And for each ticket sold, the Reds will make a donation to the SPCA Cincinnati and the Animal Rescue Foundation.
