13th Annual HAUTE DOG HOWL’OWEEN PARADE is Sunday, October 27, 2012, 2:30 p.m. at Marina Vista Park in Long Beach, CA.

This year we will attempt to break the world record for the number of costumed dogs in a parade. The parade is expected to include more than 500 costumed dogs and a few thousand human gawkers. Haute Dogs will raise thousands for spay/neuter programs, rescue groups, Operation Santa Paws and other Long Beach service projects.

The vendor fair and pet adoption fair is in the park from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Costumed kids and adults without dogs will lead the parade at 2:25 p.m., followed by the dogs at 2:30 p.m.

The parade expects 500+ dressed-up dogs and lasts about an hour.

Bring your own folding chair, or rent one of our 500 front-row seats IN THE PARK for just $5, starting at about 1 p.m. The seats did sell out last year. Please bring correct change.

There is free street parking surrounding the very large park.
