Hound-O-Ween returns 10/31/21

After a two-year hiatus, Philly’s favorite animal costume contest is back! Sign your pet up to compete for a $500 grand prize sponsored by Wilson’s Estate Jewelry. Proceeds from contestant registration and beer sold by El Camino Real will support Street Tails Animal Rescue. Dogs (and other furry friends) hit the stage at 12:30pm on Sunday, October 31st at the intersection of 2nd and Laurel streets. Get their early to catch all the action.

Since its inception in 2013, Hound-O-Ween has grown from a small parade with just a couple of contestants to an annual gathering with dozens of dressed up pets. My favorite thing about the event is that it draws people from all over, from all walks of life and all ages, and brings them together for one fun filled day where we all get to be kids again,” says Street Tails founder Allison Lewis.
