Haute Dog Howl’oween Parade
October 28, 2018 @ 2:30 PM
The Haute Dog Howl’oween Parade is the worlds largest Halloween pet event! The parade is expected to include a few hundred kids and adults in costumes, followed by more than 400 costumed dogs with their handlers. A few thousand human gawkers will line the parade route, including a panel of distinguished judges that will choose a few dozen human and canine costume winners. Haute Dogs will raise thousands for spay/neuter programs, adoption/rescue groups, Operation Santa Paws and other Long Beach service projects. Each participant must bring proof of rabies vaccination for their animals. The start/finish is at Marina Vista Park, 5355 E. Eliot St. Long Beach, 90803 (at the end of Marine Stadium; across from the fire station, by the tennis courts). The parade is on the concrete bike path that runs through the park from Colorado St. to Eliot St. The vendor fair and pet adoption fair is in the park from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Costumed kids and adults without dogs (humans can register for FREE) will lead the parade at 2:25 p.m., followed by the dogs at 2:30 p.m. Register to be in the human costume parade and/or dog costume parade at the orange registration tent in the park after 12:30 p.m. The parade expects 400+ dressed-up dogs and lasts about 45 minutes.
