Howl-O-Ween Fest

7th Annual Fido-and-family Spooktacular

Saturday, October 24, 2015 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

 

Between star-studded stage performances, parades of pooches on the runway and an assortment of crowd-and-canine approved activities, Bridgeland’s seventh annual Howl-O-Ween Fest is sure to be a ‘dog gone’ good time.

Todd Oliver and his "talking dogs"
 

Todd Oliver and his “talking” dogs, who were semi-finalists on America’s Got Talent and have been featured on the Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Today Show, will be highlights of this year's entertainment lineup. Also on deck are the Panfilov's Performing Pets, a canine and feline group that has been featured on several latenight talk shows and has performed with the Ringling Brothers. Other stage acts include Popeye and Sailor, a dog act organized by the man who trained the "smartest dog in the world," The Magic of Lanny Kibbey and high-flying antics from Houston Canine Frisbee Disc Club.

Guest will also enjoy a variety of food trucks, kids' activities sponsored by The Foundry, pumpkin decorating, trick-or-treating for pets and kids and much more!  

The third-annual pooch fashion show will be hosted by Casey Curry,  a meteorologist at KTRK who also happens to be a long-time animal rescue advocate.  

While admission and most activities are free, a few fetch a small donation.  All proceeds will benefit particpating dog rescue groups.

Dogs must be leashed and under control at all times, current on all vaccinations and wearing a current rabies tag. Aggressive dogs are not permitted on the premises. Dogs must be removed at first sign of aggression. By bringing a dog to this event, you are taking responsibility for any damage or injury caused by that dog to any person or other animal. In addition, if you or your dog is injured or suffer damage from a dog at this event, you agree that Bridgeland Development, LP is not responsible for the damage or injury.
