Howl-o-ween dog parade

Howl-o-ween dog parade and activities

The Howl-o-ween parade began with a short walk on the trails of Infirmary Mound Park, followed by a dog costume contest at the dog park. Guest judges decided the winners: Most Humorous, Most Original and Best Dog & Owner Combo.

The Licking County Humane Society joined us, bringing adoptable dogs with them. There was also  vendors, a photo booth, demonstrations, and treats for the whole family! This was a community event for all to enjoy. Spectators were encouraged to bring chairs and sit along the parade route. Polite, leashed dogs were welcome.

Infirmary Mound Park offers 4 acres of fenced, off-leash dog-park for your dogs. The dog park is divided into small and large dog areas. It is a great area for dogs and owners who like to socialize. Dogs on-leash are welcome in the LPD parks. It is requested that owners clean up after their dogs, bags are provided.
