Pet Parade and Costume Contest

presented by the Grateful Dog and Earth Mountain Bicycle

Our furry, and not so furry, friends love Halloween too! Sign your pet up to participate in this year’s Pet Parade and Costume Contest. Learn more below.

  1. Sign up to participate by October 27th at noon.
  2. Create an awesome costume for your furry (or not so furry) friend. Human costumes are encouraged too!
  3. Meet at the Silvermont Mansion parking lot (364 E. Main Street) at 1:30pm on October 28th. Participants may park here during the event.
  4. At 1:45pm strut your stuff with the other participants up to Earth Mountain Bicycle (66 E. Main Street) for the judging and a chance to win awesome prizes.
  5. Judging begins promptly by 2pm but we’d suggest getting there a little earlier if you arent’ participating in the parade. Pets aren’t always as patient as us humans and the judging may start a few minutes early.
  6. After enjoying HOB’s Halloweenfest, head to The Grateful Dog where you can use your $2 participant coupon for a treat for your pet.
