The Bryan County Bark Park announces a fun night out for your human and canine family this Friday January 23rd at 6.30pm. The Shaggy Dog is a dog and child friendly Disney movie starring comedian Tim Allen who is accidentally transformed into a lovable dog. The movie is free to view and will be screened at The Ice Cream Stop near Publix on Hwy 144.

Meal deals include the purchase of a hot dog, chips or popcorn with a drink for only $3 or the same meal plus ice cream for only $5. If the evening is chilly, hot chocolate will be available for purchase and free ice cream will be provided for dogs joining their families for movie night under the stars.

Entry is free and well behaved dogs are encouraged to attend.

Cute ‘Bark Park’ products with the Bryan logo will be for sale including koozies, sweatshirts, T-shirts, dog and human soap, poop bags, decals and tasty human and doggie cookies.

Dress up your little princesses & heroes for Disney on Ice this weekend in Savannah

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

SF_D26B_CharacterLogo_SFYK_11026 (1)

Elsa isn’t on the ice in Savannah’s annual Disney on Ice show.

But Elsa certainly is in the audience. Lots of Elsas.

Oodles of little girls dressed up as Elsa at the skating spectacular that’s in Savannah this weekend for nine performances at the Savannah Civic Center.    Disney on Ice encourages kids attending the event to dress up as their favorite princesses & heroes.

We attended the packed opening night this week & loved seeing all the kids dressed as their favorite Disney characters.

Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove  features all your Old School Disney favorites- Rapunzel, Alice & the Mad Hatter, Tinker Bell, Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Tiana, Cinderella, Jasmine, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Mulan, Snow White  and, my favorite, the Seven Dwarfs.

The crowd loved Simba, Nala, Pumbaa and Timon as they discovered the true meaning of the ‘Circle of Life.’

The show is about 1 hour & 45 minutes with a 20 minute intermission about 40 minutes in the performance.

Tickets for Disney On Ice presents Treasure Trove are available at the Savannah Civic Center Box Office here and Etix.com.
