2016 Halloween Pooch Parade

Halloween Pooch Parade

Halloween Pooch Parage

caitlinharris_oct2016_poochparade_5This year, we celebrated “Howl-o-ween” with our first-ever Halloween Pooch Parade on October 22. For one special day, Cheekwood went to the dogs as we welcomed costumed canines and their owners to parade around the gardens for a fun and festive event. Hundreds of dogs of all shapes and sizes participated, and we saw everything from collies in capes to terriers in tacos.

In addition to the dressed-up dogs, we hosted a donations drive for the Nashville Humane Association (NHA), and encouraged parade-goers to bring items from the shelter’s wish list. Thanks to our guests’ generosity, we collected over 200 items, including 75 cans of pet food, collars, leashes, toys, treats and office supplies for the NHA. Thank you to everyone who participated and helped us make the donations drive a success!


As we continue planning for 2017, stay tuned for more dog-friendly event announcements at Cheekwood, including the date for the 2017 Halloween Pooch Parade.
