Howl-O-ween goes to the dogs

Halloween is not just for the kids anymore. Dogs can have their holiday fun, too, at the Howl-O-ween Pet Fair and Costume Contest on Saturday, October 26, in Citrus Heights.

The event includes a dog costume contest, Citrus Heights Police Department K-9 demonstration, vet clinic with microchipping, face painting, silent raffle and concessions. A special tribute will be made to the blind pug Ellie, who saved her family from a house fire earlier in the year.

Musical entertainment will be provided by DJ Dennis “Bad Dog” Keating and the Brasstronauts, as well as the Citrus Heights Community Marching Band, the hosts of the day’s event. CHCMB is a free, all-volunteer, multigenerational band that performs in more than 20 local events per year. Proceeds from the Halloween event will support the band.

The Citrus Heights Community Marching Band has been selected by County Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan for a 2013 Heroes of Human Services Award, in recognition of its community service.

Howl-O-ween will be held on October 26, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Rusch Community Park, 7801 Auburn Blvd. The event is free, but the entry fee for the canine costume contest is $5. Vendor booths are available for $25. For more information, contact Kathy Cook at 916-725-0198.
