ABC Action News is partnering with 99.5QYK for the Pets in the Park event on Sunday, April 24 outside Raymond James Stadium.

Local animal shelters and non-profit organizations will be on hand with adoptable pets. There will be a vendor village with pet-focused shopping and information.

There will be a Pet Costume Contest, a Hairiest Dog Contest and a Pet Talent Show.

You can bedazzle your dogs at the doggie glam station with pet-safe colorful fur chalkings, bows and bandanas.

Dogs can enjoy wading through ice-filled pools to stay cool in the Florida heat.

A live dock jumping competition will be occurring all day with the Ultimate Air Dogs. Watch as dogs leap through the air into a 28,000 gallon poll.

Pets in the Park runs through 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. All leased pets are welcome to attend.
