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 2nd 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, Mid Florida Sheltie Rescue, 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 "six designated stops" where they will collect a special "trick or treat".
Pets dressed in their favorite "Howl-O-Ween" 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 for Large Pet, Best Costume for Small Pet.
Papa John's Pizza, the Dog n Bone British Pub, and Artist Lori Prell will be on hand for food, beverages, and caricature drawings 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.
