Howloween 2018 – Dogs vs Snow & Rain

Howloween Pup Parade 2018

Hey dog lovers, it’s your good friend Petal – Instagram @petal_the_rescue.

I’m reporting to you on Bark ‘n Yapp’s 3rd Annual Howloween Pup Parade & Costume Contest. It took place this year on Sunday, October 28 from 12:00 – 2:30. Over 75 dogs and owners braved the snow and rain that Mother Nature sent us this year. I was a co-grand marshals with my new bestie, Coffee – Instagram @coffee_the_pooch.

Apparently Coffee is owned by some big shot news guy in Toronto named Gurdeep. That’s cool.

It was great to see so many participants on this gloomy weather day. Thanks for making this such and outstanding event! Through the participants and sponsors, Bark ‘n Yapp was able to help raise over $200 for the SmartStart Shelter & Rescue Program, that collects funds for 8 charities across Canada.

Concord Adex helped make Howloween 2018 a success

Concord Adex became the lead sponsor of Howloween 2018. It was with their support, and the support of the CityPlace Fort York BIA, that Bark ‘n Yapp was able to bring this event back to CityPlace. I love it there, because it is one of the most dog friendly neighbourhoods in Canada.

Oh my what great costumes

Last year I thought the outfits were pretty good, but holy crap emoji, this year they were outstanding. Just look at some of these great outfits.
