This event has been canceled due to weather predictions for Saturday. We would still love to see your four-legged friends in their Halloween costumes. Please forward pictures to Anastasia Whalen at email@example.com for a chance to win a dual membership to The Mount.
It’s our first annual Halloween dog parade! You and your furry friend are invited to dress up and strut your stuff. Prizes will be awarded for the below categories:
Best Literary Costume – Take inspiration from classics, YA novels, mass market fiction, or anything in between and dress your pup up as your favorite author or literary character.
Cutest Costume – Halloween isn’t just about being spooky. Embrace the lighter side of the holiday and make your doggy appear even cuter than they already are.
Best Hand-Made Costume – Feeling crafty? Show off your crafting skills and your dog’s everlasting support of your hobby.
Best Matching Costume – You know its true that eventually you and your dog start to look a like. Embrace your resemblance and dress to impress in corresponding costume fun.
Parade participants are asked to register no later than 11:30 am.
Parade down to the Main House will begin at 11:45 am.
Winners will be announced following the parade.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome but dogs must be leashed at all times, and owners must clean up after their pets. We ask that all pups and their people are on their best behavior – this will be a very social event. For the safety of all enjoying the event we do reserve the right to ask any poorly behaved pups to leave.
This event is weather dependent. Please check our social channels and EdithWharton.org for updates.
