Costume Contest

Think you have the cutest dog in the neighborhood, and the costuming skills to match? Do you already know your dog is a winner but are looking for a way to validate this? Join our costume contest!

This year’s theme is The Dogs Go Marching On!

We can’t wait to see your dogs in their best costumes! It’s totally fine if your dog sports a costume that is not related to the theme. We just want to see what great ideas you come up with! Enter your dog for a chance to win accolades, bragging rights and PRIZES from our fabulous costume contest sponsors!

Please thank the businesses who have donated WONDERFUL prizes for the costume contest!

The Best Overall winner will get to be the event’s Grand Marshal!

Please Note: As we are unable to hold our traditional parade this year, due to covid restrictions, all registrants will automatically be entered into the costume contest. Of course, you don’t have to compete if you prefer not to. If you have registered separately for the costume contest and paid the $5 fee, we will be sending refunds shortly.

Costume Contest categories include:

  • Cutest Costume
  • Most Creative Costume
  • Best Theme Costume
  • Best Handler/Pet Combo
  • Best Overall – our Grand Marshal Winner!

To enter the contest, you simply need to register for the parade  and check in at Jittery Joe’s Roaster on Barber St. between 2:30-3:00. Judging begins at 3:00. Contestants will parade in front of local judges and will receive their awards at its end.

PLEASE NOTE: In the event of severe weather, Boo-le-Bark will be cancelled with no refunds given.
