There's a costume contest for everyone, (the first being the one for humans that we're hosting at "The Asylum" at Vesper Center City on Saturday Night that could score you a trip to Vegas...but also) even one for the fur babies!
Philadelphia's largest Halloween dog costume contest is back - and cuter than ever! Northern Liberties Business Improvement District is partnering with Street Tail Animal Rescue on the 7th Annual Hound-O-Ween Fall Festival and Doggie Costume Contest. And I feel SO lucky to be this years HOST!
I'm a huge dog lover, and I also do a couples costume and dress up with my dog every year so I'm BEYOND excited to know there's more people out there like me 🤣
The event is back in person (following the panorama) but has moved to the intersection of Laurel and N. 2nd Street, on Sunday, October 31st, from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. According to Aversa PR:
This year to ensure proper health and safety protocols, 40 of the region's most festively decked out pups are invited to strut across the stage. Contestants will compete for prizes in five categories for prizes, plus all dogs will compete for the grand prize of $500, sponsored by Wilson’s Estate Jewelry. Registration for this annual benefit is only a $30 donation per pup. All proceeds benefit Street Tails Animal Rescue in their mission to help homeless and unwanted animals in the Philadelphia area. On top of the doggie contest, look for outdoor food and drink, fall tunes, Halloween vibes, vendors, music and more. Hound-O-Ween Fall Festival is one of many Halloween and Fall themed activities in Northern Liberties on Halloween Sunday. For registration and full details, stay tuned to NLBID's website in mid-September.
What a fun time for all! You can register your pet HERE!
