An inaugural Trivia Night will be hosted March 5 at 7:30 p.m. by the board of the New Milford dog park.

Festivities sponsored by Artemisia Salon will take place at the railroad station on Railroad Street.

Participants will play in teams of up to eight people, with each team having an opportunity to answer all of the questions. Prizes and bragging rights will be earned by the first-place team.

Trivia questions will consist of subjects including, but not limited to, music and movies, pop culture, sports, history and canine health.

"This is our first trivia night," said Linda Pacheco, the board's community affairs chairperson, "and we hope it will be a success not only in helping us to meet our fund-raising goals but also continue public awareness and excitement about the dog parks."

Participants are asked to share something to eat or drink.

The cost to play will be $10 per person or $50 per team. Reduced rates will be offered for teams preformed and come as a group.

The New Milford dog park is a not-for-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing a safe and secure area for dog owners and their dogs to play and socialize.

Donations to support the dog park may be made payable to New Milford Dog Park and mailed to New Milford Dog Park, P.O. Box 86, New Milford, CT 06776.
