Dogs to Strut Their Halloween Best on the Esplanade this Saturday
The Esplanade Association will host its 2nd annual Canine Promenade.
You're probably already preparing your dog's costume for Patch's Halloween Pet Costume contest (right?) so why not show it off this weekend at the Esplanade's Canine Promenade?
The Esplanade Association and Pawsh Dog Boutique are inviting people to to dress up for a festive event this Saturday to support their efforts to restore and enhance the Charles River Esplanade, highlight the park as a resource for dog owners and to raise awareness about – and funds for – park improvements, including the historic Lotta Fountain.
People planning to put their pooches in the promenade can buy tickets ($10) here; the event is free for spectators. Registration begins at 10:45 a.m. and the parade starts at 11 a.m at Fiedler Field, Esplanade [Map].
Activities will include:
- A half-mile Halloween parade around the Esplanade
- Prizes for Best Costumes
- Tasty treats provided by Pawsh
- Disc Throw & Doggie Massage Demos
- And more!
And be sure to dress your dog in a costume safe for pets! Check out the Animal Rescue League's tips on appropriate pet Halloween attire.
