Spooky Pooch Parade

Saturday October 20, 2018

Times: 11am - 1pm

Spooky Pooch Parade

For two very special hours only, dogs are allowed in the Chicago Botanic Garden. Cleverly costumed canines march the parade route to celebrate Halloween. Spectators are invited to line the parade route for a barking good time. Note: Viewing the dog parade is free. If you are bringing a dog, however, you must purchase paid registration for your dog, whether or not you enter the parade and costume contest.

In addition to the parade, activities include the costume contest, judging, and an awards ceremony. Costume categories include Best Costume Overall, Best Dog/Owner Costume, Best Puppy in Costume for dogs ages 1 and under in people years, Best Senior in Costume for dogs ages 10 and older in people years, and Best Horticultural Interpretation.

Nonprofits and vendors from a variety of local pet supply shops will share information and sell dog-related products. The parade steps off from the Krasberg Rose Garden, where the activities and costume contest take place. Dogs must be on leash at all times and must leave the Garden by 2 p.m.
