Spooky Pooch Parade
12:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Every dog has his day and that day is on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017. That’s when costumed canines will rule the day in Downtown Lakewood from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. during LakewoodAlive’s 10th Annual Spooky Pooch Parade.

Sponsored by Discount Drug Mart, the Spooky Pooch Parade consists of a festival within Kauffman Park, a parade through Lakewood’s Downtown business district on Detroit Avenue and an awards presentation. A favorite Halloween tradition for Northeast Ohio dog lovers and their families, this popular community festival represents one of the only events of its kind within the region, providing a tail-wagging good time for canine and human guests alike.

Festivities get underway with the Spooky Pooch Festival beginning at 12:30 p.m. at Kauffman Park. Enjoy entertainment, kids games, delicious foods for purchase and dog-related vendors, including rescue groups and other nonprofits offering canine-oriented goods and services. Kids are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and visit vendors for some early trick-or-treating.

The much-anticipated dog parade commences at 2 p.m. Dogs of all shapes and sizes dressed in their finest Halloween fashions will strut their stuff along Detroit Avenue. Judges will award prizes beginning at approximately 3:15 p.m. in a number of categories, including Best Dog & Child, Best Dog & Adult, Best Dog & Group, Spookiest Pooch and Best in Show.
