Barktoberfest

Dogs are the new kids and unlike bringing your spawn to the bar, drinking with your furry friends is a generally accepted pastime. Royal Oak’s Barkotoberfest will combine craft beer and canines, along with food, entertainment, and shopping when it takes over Memorial Park in Royal Oak this weekend. Guests can enter their pooch pals into a Howl-a-ween costume contest, a weiner dog race, and other competitions. The two-day event is also kid-friendly.

Runs 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days; 31050 Woodward Ave., Royal Oak; royaloakchamber.com; 248-547-4000; Tickets are $5; kids 10 and younger are free.
