Tail on the Trail

Tail on the Trail is a unique and fun fitness program for you and your dog. Starting at the new Dog Park, you and your dog will walk one lap around the Biser Fitness Trail while checking out local vendors.

Your $10 donation will go to help support the Gettysburg Dog Park. Pre-registration is required. To register, fill out the participant form and bring or mail it, to the Rec Park office. Pre-registration closes October 20 at 5pm. The first 100 pre-registered participants will receive a gift.

You may also wish to enter your dog in ONE of the following events: Most original costume contest, Look-alike contest or Dog-owner costume contest.
