Howl-O-Ween proudly supporting The Lost Dogs Home.
In 2016, with the support of many local businesses and the community, the Port Melbourne Business Association held our first annual Port’s Paw Parade. A celebration of the residents of Port Melbourne’s shared love for their four legged friends. This year, we present Port’s Howl-O-Ween!
Howl-O-Ween will be held on Sunday 29 October, and will again see the community join in a day of all things pooch. The event runs from 11am to 3pm on Rouse St Port Melbourne and will be headlined by the Parade, where hundreds of owners take their pets on the largest Puppy Trick or Treat walk Melbourne has ever seen!
All monies raised from our event will be donated to The Lost Dogs' Home in North Melbourne.
