Sponsorship and Vendor Opportunities Now Available for Popular Canine Event 

LakewoodAlive, a nonprofit community development organization, proudly announces Discount Drug Mart as the Title Sponsor for the 10th Annual Spooky Pooch Parade.  Dogs will rule the day on Saturday, October 21, when this popular costumed canine event returns to Downtown Lakewood from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.

The Spooky Pooch Parade consists of a festival at Kauffman Park (15450 Detroit Avenue), 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.

Discount Drug Mart, an Ohio-based, full-service drug store, has served Northeast Ohio for nearly five decades, priding itself on superior customer service, low prices and convenient one-stop shopping.  This longtime local chain has two locations in Lakewood (13123 Detroit Avenue and 15412 Detroit Avenue), the latter of which is located just south of Kauffman Park, site of the Spooky Pooch Parade.

“We are thrilled to have Discount Drug Mart serve as the Title Sponsor for our Spooky Pooch Parade for a third consecutive year,” said Ian Andrews, LakewoodAlive’s Executive Director.  “Discount Drug Mart represents a tremendous partner to LakewoodAlive and we appreciate its many valuable contributions to our community.”

Sponsorship opportunities and vendor applications are now available for this much-anticipated autumn event.  For more information regarding serving as a sponsor or vendor for the Spooky Pooch Parade, please contact the LakewoodAlive office at 216-521-0655.
