Are you ready for woofs on the waterfront? Join us for a brand new re-imagining of our annual Howl-O-Ween canine costume event on Saturday, October 26, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Riverside Taco Company.
To take advantage of the outdoor waterfront space, this Howl-O-Ween will be a canine cavalcade, with opportunities for your pup to strut their stuff for the chance to win any of our three titles, “Most Creative Costume,” “Best Homemade Costume” and “Best Human/Canine Combo Costume.” There will also be an opportunity to win “Fan Favorite Costume,” which will be based on audience votes.
Contestants can enter any of these individual contests or choose to enter all three. Registration for each title will be $25 and can include groups of up to two dogs and a handler. Winners will be chosen by a panel of canine experts, including AWLA’s COO Stella Hanly, Kim Gilliam of Frolick Dogs and Mary Kenkel of Whole Dogz. Prizes will be provided by Frolick Dogs, Whole Dogz and other local businesses.
Participants can also purchase tickets onsite for $1 each to vote for their favorite costumed canine. Non-registered attendees can also come to enjoy the festive pups at no cost, and purchase food and drinks from Riverside Taco Company. 15% of all food sales will go towards the AWLA to benefit animals in need.
