Dog obsessed Brooklynites: You know what time it is!
The 9th Annual Howl-o-Ween Charity Doggie Costume Parade and Contest has been scheduled for Sunday, October 30th from 1-3pm on the Promenade.
If you’d like to enter your dog in the parade/costume contest, you’ll need to pre-register at Perfect Paws, 102 Hicks Street (corner of Pineapple). The cost of entry is $25/dog, all of which is a tax deductible charitable donation and all of which will be distributed among three animal-related charities:
- Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Windsor Terrace, Bklyn
- Friends of Hillside Dog Park right here in Bklyn Heights
- Blue Rider Stables near Great Barrington, Massachusetts
Fabulous prizes awarded in many categories. If you’re participated in previous years, you know how much fun this is and if it is your first time, come on down! If you don’t have a dog in this race, it’s free to be an observer and cheer on the contestants. Last year several hundred bemused locals and tourists watched over 70 parade participants strut their stuff for fun and glory.
Dr. Sara Neuman and the gang over at Vinegar Hill Vet are hosting the catered after party immediately following the contest judging–now three years running (yea Dr. Sara!). Contest winners will be announced around 4pm at the after party. You won’t want to miss this!
