Dogtoberfest IX will be held at a new location this year. The event which features a live auction, gift basket raffles, food and drink will be held at the Crow Creek Dog Park, 4800 Devils Glen Road, Bettendorf, from 12:00 noon until 3:30 pm on Sunday, October 1. The first 150 households will receive a free doggie bag.

The Crow Creek Dog Park is located on the north end of Crow Creek Park across from Softball Field #3. Look for "The Spott" for older, timid and tiny dogs. It provides almost 7 acres of fenced, safe space for dogs to run and play off leash. Enter from the Devils Glen Road main entrance. Turn left at the "T" when you get into the park and follow the road around.

Rain date is set for October 8. For more information go to the City of Bettendorf website.
