Bring your pampered pets, dressed in their very best, to Cocoa Village for a Howl-O-Ween Petacular. The event, free to attend, will be hosted by Tails at the Barkery, and will cater to the pets and the ones who love them.
You and your pet can help make the 6th Annual Howl-O-Ween Petacular a “pawpular” success! Get dressed up, catch up with old friends and meet new ones, and help raise money for two animal non-profit organizations: Mid Florida Sheltie Rescue and Touch of Grey Rescue.
The Costumed Pet Promenade begins at 1:00 p.m. with participants and their Halloween costumed pets of all shapes and sizes following a map through Cocoa Village and making designated stops where they will collect special “tricks or treats”. At five stops, they will receive one playing card. At the end of the Costumed Pet Promenade, the person with the best “poker hand” will win a Gift Basket.
Pets dressed in their favorite “Howl-O-Ween” costumes can enter the “howlingly” fun pet costume contests beginning at 2:30 p.m. Each contest entry fee is a $10 donation per pet in advance and $15 at the event.
Win “Fa-boo-lous” Prizes for: Best Decorated Wagon or Stroller, Best Dressed Owner-Pet Combo, Best Costume–Large Pet and Best Costume–Small Pet.
For purchase, there will be delicious food, beverages, and Artist Lori Prell will be on hand for caricature drawings.
All pets must be on a leash, or in appropriate carriers, and have current vaccinations and county tags for the safety of our animals and friends.
