Muncie Easter Event for Dogs and their Families at Heekin Park


Please mark your calendars about this change and don’t miss this Easter Re-Do!


Back by popular demand!

Our Dog-Diggity Easter Egg hunts have been jam-packed full of happy dogs, kiddos and their families since 2013 and we’re bringing it back to Heekin Park this year.

If you’re a dog owner, you definitely don’t want to miss it. This is the ONLY dog-friendly Easter event in Muncie and it’s also a great way to socialize your pup, win some fantastic prizes and do something a little out of the ordinary.

A common question we get asked is if you have to have a dog – or kids – to come to this event.


Anyone can come but most of the prizes are geared towards dog owners and children, so be prepared. If you win and have no use for the doggie goodies you can always donate them to your local shelter, to someone in need, or maybe even someone at the event. Note: All participants will get a hand-stamp which enables them to pick up their prizes at the end of the event.



Muncie Easter Event Line Up

1:15pm Registration Starts

2:00 – 2:30pm Easter Egg Hunt

2:35 – 2:55pm Best Dressed Easter Parade Contest

3:00pm Prize Pick Up


Best Dressed Easter Parade

The Easter parade contest is open to everyone but it’s geared towards children and dogs. We encourage the little ones to wear bunny ears, prince or princess costumes or butterfly wings. The whole family can get in on the action and go with a theme.

Dog parents can also enter their dogs in the contest. Again, get creative but make sure your dog is comfortable and that s/he can walk comfortably in the costume. We suggest that you try it out before the event just to make sure your dog knows what’s going on.

Two of the most cute and creative costumes will win.

Important Info for the Dogs

To participate in this event we ask that you:

  • Please bring proof of your dog’s current vaccination record, including rabies
  • Keep your dog on a leash during the entire event (make sure collar fits snuggly so it can’t slip off)
  • Retractable leashes are not permitted, borrow one of ours and return it when the event is over


Cost is $5 per person over 13 years old, dogs are free!

Don’t miss this fun Easter event for the entire family.



We’re collecting Easter basket donations from local businesses and individuals and we’d love your help! If you’d like to donate candy, dog treats or prizes, please call us and we’ll stop by and pick up your donation. All donors will receive free promotion on social media and recognition at the event.
