Calling all dogs and their humans! Get your costumes ready! We will have a doggie scavenger hunt, an optional parade (walk) through Infirmary Mound Park after the dog costume contest, and vendors, a bounce house for the kids, treats for the whole family, and plenty of time for dogs to play in our 4-acre dog park! Adoptable dogs will be on hand from the Licking County Dog Shelter and the Licking County Humane Society. The Newark Veterinary Hospital will be there with ways to keep your pet healthy and happy, including microchipping and nail clipping. Spectators are encouraged to bring chairs. Polite, leashed dogs welcome.
Costume contest entries are encouraged to register through our website prior to the event. Guest judges will decide the winners of categories including: Most Humorous, Best Owner/Dog Combo, Most Original, Best Small, and Best Large Dog. Costume entries can enter TWO categories.
