Going to take this weeks entry to do a shameless plug on an event that I am taking part in this weekend! Please join me this Saturday October 27th at Shubie Park in Darmouth for the first annual "howl-o-ween extravaganza" in support of local animal shelters. So come out with the kids (human,furry or both) and stop by my booth for treats, face painting and a chance to win $1,000!! Details of the event can be found HERE.
Howl O’Ween around the Shubie Canal!The Goblins, Ghouls, Pets n’ Drools committee will be hosting the event! Which is scheduled for Sat. Oct. 27th from 11 to 3 with a rain date of Sun. Oct. 28th.
This event will include suppliers, vendors, displays & demos along with other rescue organisations set up around the canal. This is being done as a family/dog event with trick or treating for the both animals and kids.
Some activities planned for the animals will include bobbing for weiners, costume contest (dogs and ppl) with different catorgies, speed trap for dogs (radar used to get their speed & ticket issued with the info), photographers for pictures.
For the families we will be having a BBQ with hotdogs and hamburgers, face painting and music. As well we have requested a Fire Truck for display and that will depend on their schedule and availability.
We will be placing/assigning locations around the canal for each attendee to set up their display and supplying the tables as well. The rescues have been encouraged to bring a couple of their adoptables with them as well.
Treats for the dogs and kids will be supplied however with this event there will be NO chocolate allowed.
In order to Trick or Treat each person will need to make a donation at the beginning and in return will receive a specially marked bag, this bag will identify the ppl that are entitled to receive a treat for their dog and/or child.
Hope to see you there!
