Join us for fun and save some lives!

Costume Parade & Contest: Your well socialized creatively-costumed-canines are cordially summoned to enter our juried costume parade & contest as a Haunted Hound Entry. Leave your less social hounds at home for the day and join us as a Spooktator Entry where you can enjoy the parade and help with the voting, explore our sponsors and make new friends, and procure a doggie bag full of treats on your stay-at-home pooch's behalf. Junior Spooktator's enter free. Prizes for the most creative, most inspirational, and most haunting costume categories and one GRAND PRIZE for the crowd favorite who steals the day! Prefer to run with crowd, do a group costume! Got wheels? Non-motorized carts, strollers and wheelchairs can become part of your costume as a float entry! Get your Photos taken in front of our glorious LOVE sign, or at our Sniff & Repeat using the hashtags #OCQHowlOWeen #occoquanva #2LOYALHowlOWeen #RLAHHowlOWeen #PWHSHowlOWeen
