Somerville’s Halloween Block Party and Pet Parade are back for their seventh year! This year’s showcase features a Halloween Pet Costume Contest for patrons and their furry friends.
You and your pet get the chance to strut the red carpet and show off your best costumes to an expert panel of judges. Matching costumes aren’t required, but they are highly encouraged. The panelists will award one lucky duo the title of best costume, for both the pet and distinguished owner.
There will be plenty of other pet-centric and fall-themed festivities filling the block. Bring the whole family to enjoy:
- Dog training demonstrations with Zen Dog
- Story reading of Puppy Life by Traer Scott courtesy of All She Wrote Books
- Shop artisanal chocolates from Petrova Chocolates
- Pet parade
- Costume contests for owners and pets
- Craft corner with face paint and more!
The Halloween Block Party and Pet Parade is completely free to attend! The annual block party is an initiative to assist Somerville in revitalizing Chuckie Harris Park, where the parade takes place. Chuckie Harris Park is an essential landmark of Somerville’s childcare community and fosters learning and growth with play equipment and a host of fun events each year!
