Howloween @ The Barkyard

People aren’t the only ones that get to celebrate Halloween this year. Thanks to our friends at The Barkyard, our four legged friends will also have a chance to have some howling fun. That’s because The Barkyard is playing host to an event called Howloween. The festive event is essentially a contest, where the pups are on parade, donning their grooviest and scariest, and most delightful costumes. Even their human companions can join in on the fun.

The categories to compete in this year’s costume contest are: best human/dog look alike, funniest, scariest, cutest, and best overall. Oh boy, this is going to be a real hoot!

Aside from the costume contest, the event will feature a food truck, doggie parade, pet blessings, a 50/50 raffle, a mega raffle, and dog rescues. So come on down to LaSalle Park, with or without your pooch, to see witness all of the pup pep. It’s going to be an experience that you will not soon forget.

Remember, The Barkyard has two sections – one for small breeds and one for larger breeds, so don’t be afraid to bring your pupsqueek or pupkin along with you. There’s room for everyone to enjoy a romp in the sun.
