Mapson says attendees can bring their dogs for Bark in Park on Thursday, April 4th. They’ll also feature dollar beers and fireworks after the game.

“We have a few new concession stands. We’re going to have some different, extreme items,” added Mapson, who said specialty hot dogs will be served up.
