Bowes Bark!

We Love Myddleton Road is proud to announce Bowes Park’s first ever dog competition: Bowes Bark!

Taking place 11.00-11.30am, Saturday June 16th, this unique dog competition for Bowes Park canines is free to enter - and you don’t need a dog to join the fun!

Amongst other categories, prizes will be awarded for the dog most likely to: 

  • Win the Great British Bake Off
  • Support Ed Sheeran at Wembley Stadium
  • Have attended Harry and Meghan’s wedding

The full list of categories will be revealed on the day… 

Dogs wishing to enter the competition must arrive with their owners promptly at 11am to the corner of Myddleton Road and Marlborough Road, and register with the organisers. 

If you don’t have a dog, you can be a judge! Turn up at 11am and you will receive a form with the full list categories so you can vote for your choices!
