Bring Your Dog to the Park this Summer Thanks to Humane Pennsylvania

May 27, 2021

Five Bark in the Park Days at FirstEnergy Stadium

 (Reading, PA) – The Reading Fightin Phils are excited to have our furriest fans out at FirstEnergy Stadium this summer during our Bark in the Park nights thanks to Humane Pennsylvania. There will be five Sunday Bark at the Park nights at America’s Classic ballpark where fans can bring their dogs along with them to enjoy the game.

Dog tickets are available for just $5 at these select games. Pups have their own seat so they have just as great of a view as you do! Humane Pennsylvania will have an information table set up in the VIST Bank Plaza at all Bark in the Park games.

“Humane Pennsylvania has been partnering with the Reading Fightin Phils for quite a few years now, and this year we’re more excited than ever to bring people and their pups back to the ballpark!” shared Lauren Henderson, Director of Development for Humane Pennsylvania.
