It was another fun-filled family event for pets and people on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the Dog Park at Ann Van Middlesworth Park in Hillsborough, New Jersey. The annual HOWL-O-Ween Dog Costume Parade took place with local girl scouts as judges.
Belle Mead Animal Hospital participated with a table full of treats and information. BMAH also donated a Gift Basket for one of the lucky costume winners. Participant check-in began at 8:30 a.m. by the Pavilion, and the Dog Costume Parade started at at 9:00 a.m. with Mayor Frank Delcore kicking it off.
The costumes this year were extremely creative. Dogs of all sizes masqueraded as lions, witches, unicorns and bats, to name a few!
The winner of the BMAH Gift Basket was Tracy Agostino with her dog Marty! Our own Vet Technician Manager, Chrissi Daniel, participated with her crew and won a few top honors! Her dog Bella won the Best Medium Dog Costume award, and her dog Carson won the Best Small Dog Costume award. “The Zoo” was the Group costume winner. View more images on our Facebook page.
There was a special appearance of a Police K-9 with his handler, and our patient KayDee participated with her mom in matching costumes! All the dog participants were dressed to impress, and even if not awarded the best in their category, they were still winners in our opinion for showing up and showing off! Thanks Hillsborough Department of Parks and Recreation for organizing another successful event. A Howling good time was had by all.
