Bok Tower Upcoming events

Dog Day of Summer September 6!
On this special day, Bok Tower Gardens once again becomes completely dog-friendly for a good cause! Leashed and friendly dogs are invited to visit for a $5 admission fee to help support the Humane Society of Polk County, which will receive 50% of the event proceeds. Dog admission includes a doggie gift bag. Regular human admission rates apply, and all activities are included.
Tips on dog health, safety, grooming, and adoption information will be available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., as well as some special friends who need a good home. “Ask a Vet” and “Ask a Trainer” experts will be on hand to answer questions, doggie boutique items will be for sale, and you can even have your pet's photo taken with Santa Claus in time for those holiday greeting cards! Water bowls will be located throughout the Gardens.
New this year, we are pleased to welcome Deputy Scott Billo and his partner, Duke, from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office who will be giving a K-9 demonstration at 10 a.m. Then the ever-popular dog contests begin at 10:45 a.m., with prizes being awarded for the top three dogs in the categories of "Cutest," "Most Talented," and "Best Kisser."
Dog Day of Summer is fun for the whole family!
