Healdsburg's "Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade" Photo Gallery

On Saturday, October 24th, families and their pets gathered for the annual Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade in the Healdsburg Plaza. Hosted by the Healdsburg Dog House, hundreds attended for the costume contest, raffle, and numerous fundraisers.

The Humane Society attracted many to the truck of adoptable cats and dogs, The supporters of the Cloverdale Dog Park entertained us with hot dog dunking, and the Healdsburg Dog Park had a bake sale for sale for both humans and canines. It was quite a spectacle as the dressed up doggies and their owners paraded around the plaza and were then announced and judged on stage.

Here are a few of my favorite costumes and the winners of the costume contest. And don't forget to come by and support this wonderful event, hosted by Natalee of the Healdsburg Dog House, next year! Enjoy!
