What’s better than a dachshund? Why a dachshund in a pumpkin costume, of course! It’s time for the seventh annual HalloWeinerPawLooza, where families and their pups come together for a day of fun that’s equal parts Halloween themed and equal parts dog themed.
The fun starts at 9 a.m. on October 29th at the Boys and Girls club in El Dorado. Put your pup in his or her best disguise and sign them up for the Pet Costume Contest at 9:30 a.m. But don’t let the dogs have all the fun—kids who come in costume can participate in their own costume contest later in the day, and can also enjoy some on-site games and trick-or-treating, presented by United Way. Both costume contests cost $2 for registration.
Then, the classic Dachshund Dash race for dachshunds only begins at 11 a.m. This year, however, there’s no discrimination as the race for the Weiner Wanna Bes (i.e. any other breeds) will begin one hour earlier. Registration is $10 and must be done in advance. Other canine contests, like best trick, best howl and worst breath, will take place as well. Ditch the dog park this October weekend and have a little Halloween fun.
