Don’t let the inclement skies get you down. It’s a bellwether for the new season, and the Annual Charity Howl-o-Ween Doggie Costume Parade/Contest is just around the corner!
- This year’s charity Howl-o-ween Parade will be held Saturday, October 30th from 1-3pm on the Promenade.
- Parade participants should registerat Perfect Paws, 102 Hicks St, corner of Pineapple St., by Sunday, October 24th.
- The registration fee is $25.00 per dog. Late registrations at the parade will be $30.00 per dog. All registration fees are tax deductible. All proceeds go to animal-related charities.
- Blow-out after party following the parade at Vinegar Hill Vet, 57 Front Street in Dumbo, where the winners will be announced and prizes awarded. (Thank you Dr. Sara Neuman!) Last year’s after party was fabulous.
It’s free to watch the parade if you don’t have a dog in this race. ;-)
Last year’s parade/contest had over 70 costumed entrants and attracted many amused neighbors, kids, gawking tourists and international news media on the famous Brooklyn Heights Promenade to watch the parade and costume judging.
The Howl-o-Ween parade is sponsored by Perfect Paws and Friends of Hillside Dog Park. For more info, contact Tom Vasquez at Perfect Paws: (718) 852-6200.
