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 on Saturday, October 29, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Myrt Tharpe Square (Gazebo) in Historic Cocoa Village. You and your pet can help make the 1st 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 three animal non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations: Florida Dachshund Rescue (FLDR); Golden Retriever Rescue of Mid-Florida (GRRMF); and, S.P.C.A. of Brevard. The Costumed Pet Promenade begins at 2:00 p.m. with participants and their Halloween costumed pets of all shapes and sizes following a map through Cocoa Village and making "five designated stops". At each stop, they will collect one playing card and a special "trick or treat". 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-Wee" costumes can enter the "howlingly" fun pet costume contest beginning at 3:00 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. Papa John's Pizza and the Dog n Bone British Pub will be on hand for food and beverages to purchase. All pets must be on a leash, or in appropriate carriers, and have current vaccinations and tags for the safety of our animals and friends.
