Halloween can be a pretty adorable time if you have small children or small dogs because babies and puppies in pumpkin costumes are cute. Babies and puppies in any costume are cute, really, and just imagine a place where multitudes of dressed-up dogs, and probably children, convene and parade around. This magical place is Sixth Street in Mainstrasse. Yes, it’s time for a costume Paw-rade (their pun, not mine) where your dog is encouraged to dress like his/her favorite movie character. Registration takes place in Goebel park from 1-2:45 p.m. and the parade and judging begin at 3 p.m. The top prizes will be awarded for Most Original, Best Owner-Dog Look Alike and Best Overall. There will also be micro-chipping, a vet panel, doggie massage and nail clipping for the canines and trick-or-treating in the business district, food, drinks, games and more for humans. A $5 registration fee goes to benefit the Kenton County Animal Shelter. All dogs must have proof of current rabies vaccination.
