This Saturday marks the return of “Pups In the Park,” a promotion the team began last year in which the Washington Nationals open the gates of Nationals Park to their furry fans.
While regular seats remain available for the 1:05pm game vs. the Florida Marlins, the Dog Tickets are apparently a complete sellout.
The special $5.00 Dog Tickets allow fans to sit with fido in the Left Field Mezzanine, sections 201 through 203 (human seats are still $20.00). The area will feature a sod grass section behind the stands for dogs who’ve had too much beer, and dog walkers from Fetch! Pet Care are on hand to let you visit the concessions yourself.
The first-ever “pup parade” is a new addition. Fans will be invited to walk their dogs around the warning track before the game, so Josh Willingham, please watch where you step in left field Saturday.
Dog Tickets are on sale now for the second Pups in the Park day, which will be Sunday, August 29.
UPDATE: A day after this post, the August 29 date sold out as well! Clearly the Nationals need to look into expanding their canine capacity for this popular event.
UPDATE #2: The Nats have added a section for the August 29 date, so tickets are available again!
