The fun event included a quirky dog show, a fancy dress competition, a sponsored dog walk, ‘Doggies’ Got Talent’ and much more at Williamson Park in Lancaster.

Sponsored by Lanes Vets, the year's theme was 'Wild Animals' and some fabulous costumes were on show.

New for 2018 was ‘Doggies’ Got Talent’ and the crowd thoroughly enjoyed being entertained by the competitors’ antics.

Anna Saczek, Bark in the Park event organiser from CancerCare, said: “The event was very well attended and we were delighted that so many people turned up with their four-legged friends.
