Join the Canine Trick or Treaters strolling down King Street on Sunday Oct…
ALEXANDRIA, Virginia–Up and down King Street, Old Town Alexandria will be bustling with towers or excited caterers decked out in costumes on Sunday, October 30 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Lucky participants of the Howl-o-ween Extravaganza will eagerly flock to participating stores to pick up the range of treats and prizes donated by the entertained store employees.
The creative and hilarious Halloween outfit will consist of ghoulish goblins, superheroes, fairy princesses, aliens, Halloween witches, bumblebees, punk rockers, glowing skeletons and maybe even… a UPS driver or two. Much to the delight of locals and unsuspecting tourists alike, these amusing treat-lovers are beloved dogs, accompanied by their proud doggie mommies and daddies.
Howl-o-ween extravaganza attendees are encouraged to meet up in-store at the Dog Park, 705 King Street, to pick up their goody bags and maps before starting their trek for treats. In this ghostly ride around Old Town, spooky pooches will get boo bags while supplies last. They will visit businesses in hopes of filling their treat bags to the brim by the end of the day.
The maps provided give the layout of the over 25 stores participating in the Doggy Trick or Treat event. Some of the participating stores include Mae’s Market and Cafe, Salon deZen, Red Barn Mercantile, Simon Pierce, Bishop Boutique, She’s Unique and many more. Visit The Dog Park 705 King St. to see the full list of attendees.
Another highlight of this event is the costume contest in which participants can win $50.00 gift cards to The Dog Park store. The categories are: best individual costume, best family costume and best group costumes. Cierra, who works at the store, is “always fascinated by the creativity and detail” that dog owners come up with. Last year’s Star Wars-themed costumes were crowd favorites.
The Dog Park is an independent dog and cat boutique that specializes in unique items that are unlikely to be found in large chain stores. They offer all-natural dog and cat foods and treats, a variety of collars and harnesses, and many other specialty dog and cat-themed items that any pet lover can appreciate. Dog owners are encouraged to stop by anytime during opening hours to browse and enjoy a dog treat.
For animal lovers and those in need of some fall fun, this Saturday’s event is the place to be.
