Is your pooch getting all dressed up for Halloween, but has nowhere to go? Get yourself and your dog to a Canine Halloween Costume event! If you're in the Southern California area, take your canine to the 6th Annual Haute Dog Howl'oween Parade on October 29th in Long Beach at Livingston Park. Twelve blocks of space have been dedicated to this annual fundraising event. For 2006, this Canine Halloween costume event hopes to raise money to help homeless and shelter animals by donating to Operation Santa Paws. The parade festivities include a best costume contest, a bulldog kissing booth, floats, and the participation of numerous vendors. Last year, there were over 500 dogs in attendance and over $10,000 raised for charity. For more information on this fundraising event, go to www.hautedogs.org.
