The American Heart Association's annual Tuscaloosa Heart Walk is this weekend, so lace up your walking shoes and get out for a great cause. The 2017 Heart Walk is Saturday, March 25 at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater.

**NOTE: Time and date change for Bark in the Park 2017: Because of a threat of severe weather on Saturday, March 25, Bark in the Park has been *moved* to Saturday, May 13.**

Tails will be wagging as Tuscaloosa welcomes Bark in the Park back for another year. The event will be held at Will May Dog Park and Sokol Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 13.

The family-friendly event returns with crowd favorites, like the dog parade, obstacle course, photo opportunities and more. Kim Parker, the 2017 Bark in the Park chairwoman, said the event is a perfect community gathering.
