Among pup owners, who doesn’t love a good chance to dress up your beloved pooch in the spirit of Halloween? The annual Haute Dog Howl’oween Parade is an occasion to do just that and enjoy the overwhelming cuteness of hundreds of other dogs dressed in their most adorable costumes marching down Marina Vista Park in Long Beach. If you wish for your pet to participate, register in advance or on-site, where vendors, adoption fair and photo opps will also be available. Humans and canines in costume will be eligible to win their respective costume contests, and best of all, registration fees will go towards the Community Action Team nonprofit, which funds events for children and dogs as well as local beach cleanups.
