GREENWICH, Conn. Do you love dressing your pets up for Halloween? Show off their style at the fourth annual Howl & Prowl parade and costume contest in Greenwich on Oct. 29 to benefit Adopt-A-Dog Greenwich.
Owners and their costumed pets should gather in the Island Beach commuter parking lot at 1 p.m. to view exhibits, hear music and participate in Halloween activities before the parade on Greenwich Avenue.
After the pooches show off their costumes to shoppers on the avenue, semi-finalists will be judged at the parking lot. Pets will compete for five prizes including ribbons and gift certificates to the Pet Pantry Warehouse: first place ($150), second place ($100), third place ($75) and runner up ($50).
Be sure to dress up as well to compete for a $100 prize for the best combined costume for pets and their owners together.
Participation in the parade is free. Registration for the costume contest is $20. All proceeds go to support Adopt-A-Dogs programs. Registration forms are available at Pet Pantry Warehouse locations in Greenwich, Rye and Larchmont and online.
The rain date for the parade is Sunday Oct. 30. Parking for the event is free.
