The fifth annual Howl-O-Ween Fest was a howlin' good time - delighting more than 7,000 people and their furry friends!
Attendees enjoyed performances from Sundance Dog Team, Mutts Gone Nutts Comedy Dog Act, magician Lanny Kibbey and Houston Canine Frisbee Disc Club. Splash Dogs also hosted its annual competition and Maggie Flecknoe with Channel 39 emceed the pooch fashion show as ’haute’ dogs strutted along the runway in their best costumes.
The Foundry once again sponsored the family fall fest area, offering children a chance to play carnival-themed games and enjoy an inflatable park. Popular among the younger attendees, the arts and crafts, face painting and wax hands tents stayed busy throughout the day, while the caravan of food trucks drew in guests of all ages.
More than $4,500 was raised and all proceeds distributed among the 12 rescue groups that were on site at the event.
