Reminder: Halloween Howl at Edmonds Off-Leash Dog Park Saturday

Bring your favorite canine in costume to the 8th Annual Halloween Howl at the off-leash dog park at Edmonds’ Marina Beach, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The event, sponsored by Off-Leash Area Edmonds, will feature pet-friendly vendors, raffles, silent auction items and the ever-popular doggie costume contest.

Costume categories — including best in show, best homemade, scariest and best dog/human costume” — will be judged at 1 p.m. Note that dogs must have a dog license in order to win, to comply with a new City of Edmonds law requiring all dogs visiting the park to be licensed.
