Calling all costumed canines! Join the Pooch Parade and you might just trot away a winner. Whether your dog is ‘paw’sitively frightening or ear-scratchingly adorable, we love to see them all. Vendors will delight your furry friends with special treats and photo opportunities abound in the Pumpkin Houses.
Categories for the costume contest include:
Prizes will be provided by Painted Paw Studio, Proverbs 12:10, The Doggie Joggers, and Poodoo Leash.
*Please note dogs are not allowed inside any buildings. We ask that all pups be on a leash.
