Dress your pets up for the 13th annual Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade and Costume Contest!

Do you and your pet have plans for Halloween?  Bone-A-Fide Pet Boutique is hosting their 13th (spooky!) annual Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade & Costume Contest.  The parade starts at 3:00PM at Town Square (Montreat Road & State Street) in Black Mountain, North Carolina.

The costume contest will follow the parade.  Registration for the contest is from 1:00-2:30PM.  Registration fee is $5 for pet and $8 for human/pet pairs.  All well-behaved domesticated animals are welcome.  In previous years winners have included the usual dog or cat, as well as farm animals!  A portion of the fees will be donated to local animal rescue organizations.  Asheville Humane Society and Full Moon Farm are among the organizations that will be present at the event.

Prizes will be awarded in both costume categories.  Prizes have been generously donated by businesses in Black Mountain.  Two grand prize winners will receive a cash prize.  Sponsors include Cherry Street Kids, Chifferobe, Curiosity Shoppe, CW Moose, Dark City Deli, Head to Toe, Merry Wine Market, Seven Sisters, Thyme & Again, Town Hardware, Veranda Cafe, and Vision of Creation.
