Barktoberfest New Event: Radar Race

We are so excited to have Atlantic K-9 Vest Fund www.atlantick9vestfund.org at the event and for our attendees to run the Radar Race. The race is 40 yards long and the dog will be "clocked" by an official police radar gun.   The official time will be posted on a "speeding ticket".   This is a new event for Barktoberfest.
