The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Foundation announces its 2nd Annual Howl-O-Ween Dog Parade on Sunday, October 2 from 10 am – noon at Dollar Loan Center, the new arena in Henderson at 200 S. Green Valley Parkway.
Come join in on the fun as costumed canines let their alter-egos shine, putting on some of the cutest and most creative costumes to strut their stuff in the annual Halloween Dog Parade costume contest to compete for recognition as Top Dog, Best Dog & Hooman Duo, and Best Pack. Registration fee is $50.00 per dog and now open. Check in starts at 9:45 am and the contest starts promptly at 11:00 am.
Ghosts and goblins of the human kind are also encouraged to match their pups in Halloween costumes and partake in the festivities. The two-hour event will be jam-packed with pet-friendly activities, DJ, raffle, and for purchase unique food stations, along with The Bone Bar featuring doggie bowl and treat stations for our furry friends.
The 2023 LVMPD K-9 calendar featuring 12 beloved four-legged heroes of Metro will be unveiled and available for purchase at the event along with LVMPD branded merchandise. The calendar is the paw-fect gift for family and friends.
Proceeds from both the Howl-O-Ween Dog Parade and 2023 LVMPD K-9 calendar benefit the LVMPD Foundation to help support hundreds of programs and initiatives that help keep Southern Nevada safer, including funding lifelong healthcare and veterinary care for active and retired service dogs.
“LVMPD has one of the oldest, continuously operating K-9 units in the United States. We look forward to seeing everyone and their dogs in costume for this fun parade to support Metro’s K-9 division,” said Tom Kovach, Executive Director of the LVMPD Foundation. “Our four-legged heroes go above and beyond in their service to make our community a safer place, and they deserve to be cared for in return.”
All pets must be licensed with tags, healthy, play well with others, and on a leash to attend the event. For registration and sponsorship information click Howl-O-Ween Dog Parade | LVMPD Foundation
