Will take place on the BPC Esplanade, starting at 11:30 am. at the SOUTH Cove wooden arbor. The parade will proceed from the South Cove in a northerly direction on the Esplanade to the plaza area near the North Cove Marina (where the volleyball courts are usually set up) where your dog (and maybe you) will be judged on your costumes. Prizes will be awarded for Best Costume — Large Breed; Best Costume — Small Breed; Best Owner & Dog Combo; Best Dog Team Costume. A Tail-Wagging Contest for Small & Large Dogs will be held again this year. They will also have a Raffle for exciting new prizes. All dog owners and their dogs (in costume) should meet promptly at 11:20 a.m. on the Esplanade at the South Cove Arbor. Rain date: Sunday, October 27, but starting at noon instead of 11:30 am.
