This Sunday (10/29), the Hillside Dog Park will stage its annual Dog Halloween Parade Extravaganza at 3:30 PM. It will start on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade at Remsen Street with dogs and owners in costume and will continue up the Promenade to the Hillside Dog Park.  Judging of costumes will happen at the entrance of the park at about 4 PM.

Brooklyn Heights pooches must register at Perfect Paws (102 Hicks Street, tell them we sent you!).

This year DUMBO dogs are also welcome and they should register at the Sweeney Building (30 Main Street, front desk). The DUMBO parade's starting point will be at  the flagpole at Brooklyn Bridge Park's entrance. (Water St. @ Plymouth).

There is an entry fee/donation of a minimum of $10 per pet with all proceeds going to Hillside Dog Run and Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition. A portion of proceeds from any costume purchased at Perfect Paws will also go to those organizations.
