Event FAQs:

How much does it cost to attend Paws in the Park?
Paws in the Park is a free event open to the public, but some vendors on-site will charge for their services.
 
Do the vendors only take cash, or can I pay with a credit card?
 
That depends on the vendor!  All of them will take cash, though some may be set up to take credit cards. Be sure and ask what forms of payment they accept before agreeing to any purchases.
 
Is there an age limit for the event?
 
No there is not. Paws in the Park will be open to folks of all ages.
 
Where is Centennial Plaza?
 
Centennial Plaza in Round Rock (formerly known as the Sharon Prete Main Street Plaza) can be found at 221 E Main St Round Rock, TX 78664. The park is located across the street from City Hall and can be found at the intersection of East Main and South Lampasas Street. This is not to be confused with Centennial Park in Austin, soon to be the site of the University of Texas teaching hospital.
 
Is there parking in the area? How much is it?
 
Yes there is! You will find a free parking garage near the park at the intersection of East Baghdad and South Lampasas Street.
 
In the event of bad weather, will the event be cancelled?
 
No. Paws in the Park will be held on September 27th, rain or shine.
 
Can I bring food and drink?
 
You can! The sole exception will be alcohol, which you may not bring onto the premises. Food and drink will also be available for purchase from the on-site vendors.
 
Stupid question, but I can bring my pet, right?
 
Of course you can! It’s their big day!
 
What pet rules must we obey?
As with any city park, your pet must be on a leash and you must clean up your pet’s waste and put it in the proper receptacle.
 
Can I bring folding chairs or a blanket to sit on for the concert?
 
You can, but with all the animals that will be around it’s not highly recommended if you want that blanket to stay clean!
 
Can I ride my bike/skateboard?
 
Once again, as with other city parks, you are not allowed to skateboard on the premises. We ask that you refrain from biking on premises as well. There will be bicycle parking provided for those that use it as a mode of transportation.
