Howl-o-Ween Costume Party
Come be whatever makes your tail wag and show off for the other Riverside barkers! Bring out the superhero in your dog and join us for a Howl-o-Ween celebration. This year’s festival will include a costume parade on the Promenade, so bring your pups dressed in their most fetching costumes. Walk the runway and compete in our costume contest with the chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes. This year we have an exciting group of surprise judges who will be awarding prizes for Best D.O.G. Costume (for small, medium and large dogs), Most Original Costume, and Best Group Costume. For dog lovers who join their dog in dressing up, there will also be an award for Best Friend’s Best Costume. Of course, it is not a dog competition without an award for Best in Show. There will be a photo booth for family pawtraits, and lots of fun paws-on activities. This event is not a trick and is guaranteed to be a real treat.
This event is free and open to everyone; we recommend a $10 donation to attend, and a $20 donation to enter the costume contest. All proceeds go directly to the Conservancy’s volunteer-led Riverside Park D.O.G. (“Dog Owner’s Group”), who are raising money to improve spaces and amenities for dogs and their people throughout Riverside Park. You can learn more and RSVP on Facebook.
