It will be in the 80s on Sunday and your dog can use a nice swim to keep cool.

Fortunately the Bismarck Parks Department has the perfect event with their Pool Pooch Party.

This doesn't require much explanation. If you have a dog, your dog is welcome to join the pool party which will take place on August 14 at the Wachter Aquatic Complex located at 205 Reno Ave. in Bismarck.

There will be two sessions: one for small dogs and one for big dogs.

If you have a dog that weighs less than 30 pounds, the party is from 5:00pm to 6:15pm. For dogs over 30 pounds, the fun begins at 6:15pm and will go until 7:30pm.

The event is free but donations will be accepted in order to help make improvements to the Bark Park.

There is only one dog allowed per adult and all dogs must be on leashes until they enter the water. Retractable leashes are not allowed. Dogs need to be up-to-date on all vaccinations, need to behave well around other people and dogs, and it is requested that people don't bring dogs under four months.

For more information, check out the event details on the Bismarck Parks website.
