Surely, we have all longed for a Chicago Park District DFA iPhone cover as we played with our iPhones while watching our pups run about at the park!

Well the holiday season is here - and it turns out you can peruse the 'Dog Friendly Area Collection' at the Chicago Park District Store!

No, really.

Just a couple of days away, our biggest event of the year, it's the Fifth Annual Wiggles & Giggles Halloween Bash! The weather report says that the rain will end Wednesday, and there is a bit of a warm up predicted for Thursday. So glad !!!

We will have live entertainment this year by Radium Mando, a subgroup of the Radium Swing Band, who will be performing Gypsy Jazz, and Chicago KICS United FC will be on site providing a soccer activity for the kids, as the party is just getting underway. There will also be plenty of Trick-or-Treating and refreshments for all throughout the evening. The Costume Parades and Contests start ~7:00 PM.

Costume categories include Child, Dog, and Ensemble (a costume comprised of both humans and dogs). We will have two waves of Costume Parades and Contests, with the children’s category going first, in the interest of early bedtimes! Then it will be time for the dog's turn !!!

The party will be centered around the Performance Area at Fred Anderson Park, with the Costume Parades traversing the strolling pathways immediately surrounding it, culminating on the stage where the contestants will be able to be viewed and celebrated by everyone, including our distinguished judges!

Come on out and meet your South Loop neighbors, oooooooh and aaaaaaaaah over the cute costumes, do some Trick-or-Treating, and participate in fun Costume Parades and Contests for both the Kids and the Dogs!

We would like to thank our supporters for their financial contributions which are necessary to help make this event a success. Their contributions go toward decorations, refreshments, prizes, permits, and entertainment. Thank you so much MetroVet Center, South Loop Animal Hospital, JB Bruderlele DVM, Medical Director and founder of Burnham Park Animal Hospital, and Board Members of the Greater South Loop Association. Thank you to South Loop Kriser's Natural Pet for the doggy goodie bags, and to DoGone Fun! for the very large bags of top-of-the-line dog food for our Dog Costume Contest winners!

Always on the Thursday night before Halloween, please join the South Loop Dog Park Action Cooperative (SLDogPAC) and the Greater South Loop Association for this FREE party at Fred Anderson Park for families with dogs, families with kids, and of course families with both!

This is funny.... but unfortunately true. Keep doing your best to pick up what your pups leave, and if you find another one, be a 'poo angel' and pick it up, too, so you or your dog doesn't step in in later 🙂

Be careful out there, dog lovers! 😀

South Loop Dog Park Action Cooperative (SLDogPAC)We agree! And as a regular user of Grant Bark Park you probably already know about the lengthy closures during Lollapalooza while they use the area north of it for golf cart staging and communications towers and trailers, and use our water fountain as their water source. We have tried to appeal to event organizers in the past to give a financial gift to help with maintenance and improvements of Grant Bark Park, but were only successful once. At the time Lollapalooza organizers said "Lolla loves Dogs", so now, we're not sure if they love dogs anymore...

  1. Bill, we forwarded your comment to the Chicago Park District for advice and their recommendation is yes – call 911.

    First line is to call 911 if you feel threatened. We have a major issue with dogs off leash at this park. Security and myself deal with this ongoing issue. I will notify our CPD security but they should call 911 immediately.

    Note that Roosevelt Park is not a city-sanctioned off-leash dog area!

  2. I was confronted by a thug in the dog park at Roosevelt Road today. Muscle bound thug, his dogs had nothing to do with him. We were talking, at his invitation, about American football, and how the players of that sport do or do not deserve medical payments for their injuries on the field. I insist they do and I am entitled to my opinion. He insists I have no right to an opinion since he played for Penn State.

    He became very threatening to me with his size and when that didn’t work he insulted my wife. I saw this quickly escalating situation was going to end in violence, so we left.

    I restrained myself, and I wonder if there is a way of banning someone from the park. This man was clearly looking for a fight. Should I call the police?
