On Saturday, October 15, 2016, the best-dressed pooches in the region will strut their stuff for one of the biggest Halloween kickoff events in the area. Project Restore, an Edwardsville organization dedicated to addressing education, clean water, and medical care issues in developing countries, will host the 2nd Annual Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume Parade, a morning of fun for every member of the family, including the four-legged ones!
Due to the popularity of the event, the parade has been moved from Dunlap Lake to Joe Glik Park, 710 E. Lake in Edwardsville, to accommodate longer routes, larger crowds, and bigger family fun! In addition to the parade, the event includes raffles, giveaways, and other activities. It’s free to watch the parade and $20 to enter your pup in the parade in costume contest. Registration begins at 10 a.m. with the parade at 10:30 a.m.
Dogs must remained leashed, have current rabies and vaccination tags, and wear I.D. tags at all times. No puppies under four months old.
All proceeds from Howl-¬O¬-Ween will help Project Restore construct an inpatient dormitory at its Wakiso District Medical Clinic in Namulonge, Uganda.
The Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume Parade is sponsored by CKC Construction, Nicole Plegge Creative and Jim Reppell at Re/Max Alliance. For more information on registration, sponsorships or becoming a vendor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 618-781-4193.
