Calling all pampered pooches and hounds from hell! Start designing your pooch’s costume now and get a leg up on the competition! Arrive at the circular drive in front of the Stone House in Forest Hill Park on Sunday, October 30, at 1 p.m. for the second annual “Halloween Howl” sponsored by Friends of Forest Hill Park. There will be plenty of games for you and your canine companion, leading up to the canine costume parade. Prizes will be awarded in the costume parade and the competitions, and there’ll be refreshments for you and your dog. It’s all free.
Even if you don’t have a dog, come out and cheer our neighborhood pups on! For more information or to volunteer to help with this event, please contact Sally Kannemeyer at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lee Shewmake at email@example.com.
Halloween Howl benefits Ring Dog Rescue, the non-profit organization that gets dogs out of the fighting ring and into loving homes. Donations accepted at the event.
