Event description

Description

It's time for another Broad Ripple Community Dog Walk! 2017 will be our fourth year doing the event!

The dog walk is inspired by National Night Out, a nation-wide event to promote involvement in crime prevention activities and police-community partnerships. In Broad Ripple we focus on neighborhood camaraderie and what brings our community together, which is why we host a night with our pets! This fun event is an opportunity to get together with neighbors, make new friends, and enjoy a night out in the neighborhood.

This year we are asking for participants to please make a donation. Donations will be split between the BRVA, who will use the funds to install waste stations in the Village, and Friends of Broad Ripple Park, who is managing a fund to pay for improvements to the dog park. Your donation will help create a more dog-friendly Broad Ripple Village!

Donors will get a complimentary "I Heart Broad Ripple" dog bandana

At 6:00 PM we check in the walkers at the start line (TBD location). Doggies will get their complimentary "I Heart Broad Ripple" bandanas and humans will get a door prize raffle ticket. The walk will start around 6:15 PM and last about 30 minutes (the total distance is 1 mile).

Some smaller and older doggies can't walk that far, so we have a half-way point set up at (TBD location). Our destination is Broad Ripple Park (1500 Broad Ripple Avenue). We will arrive there around 6:45 PM. Upon arrival we will draw the winners of the door prizes.

The Broad Ripple Carnival will be in full swing at Broad Ripple Park and Thursday night is "Dog Night". There will be all sorts of pet supply vendors, treats for dogs, an agility course, adoption organizations, and more to be announced!

Several food trucks will be onsite and the craft beer garden will be flowing. Our gathering ends at 9:00 PM.

Please note: If there is severe weather - either storms or unsafe heat - we will reschedule the walk. We will send an email to people who have RSVP'd and also post it to this and the Broad Ripple Facebook and Twitter pages.

A few requests...
Please bring and keep your dog on a leash.
Wear light colors or clothes with reflective strips for safety.

Don’t have a dog? No problem! Dogs are not required. We’d love to have your company either way! This is an opportunity for the entire community to get together.

Questions? Email info@brva.org or call (317) 251-2782.

We need just a handful of volunteers to help with setup/teardown and leading the walk. If you would like to volunteer, please sign up here: http://signup.com/go/rnvRgb
