Sunday 27th October
Port’s HOWL-O-WEEN Paw Parade & Kids Trick or Treating!
Participate in our annual
HOWL-O-WEEN Paw Parade!
Kids event are FREE! The $10 registration fee is a donation to the Guide Dogs of Victoria.
Last year over 350+ pooches and their owners descended, in costume, on Rouse St Port Melbourne for Port’s HOWL-O-WEEN, embarking on the biggest Doggy Trick or Treat ever seen. So join us this year:
Sunday 27 OCT - on the corner of Liardet & Bay St.
9 am - 10 am: Dog Registration Check-In
10 am - 11 am: Doggie Parade
11 am - 1 pm: Competitions, Entertainment, Prizes
9 am - 2 pm: Haunted Jumping Castle
11 am - 2 pm: Children’s Trick or Treat
But HOWL-O-WEEN wouldn’t be complete without the kids, so this year’s event will also include a very special FREE trick-or-treat trail! Designed just for the kids, the trail will start at the haunted jumping castle on Liardet Street and take in some of your favourite Bay Street retailers!
So, register your pooch, find your costumes and be ready to make history on Bay St on Sunday October 27th! 100% of the registration fee from the Doggie trick-or-treat parade will be donated to our charity partner, and you will be able to explore a market full of stalls catered to pooches. Prizes, competitions and doggy bags will also be available on the day.
We are proud to announce that his year our Charity Partner for HOWL-O-WEEN will once again be the Guide Dogs Victoria. Your entry fee will be donated directly to the Guide Dogs to help aid their valuable work.
A Guide Dog is a working dog that has been highly trained to guide someone who is blind or vision impaired safely from one destination to another. Guide Dogs play a critical role in enabling people with impaired vision to get around safely and independently, so they can live the life they choose.
Did you know that vision loss is on the rise in Australia. As a result, the demand for Guide Dogs is too. We live in an aging population where longevity creates vision impairment; where disease creates vision loss; and where accidents cause vision trauma. People can experience vision loss at any stage of life.
Guide Dogs Victoria needs to breed and train more Guide Dogs every year. Each Guide Dog costs in excess of $50,000. Guide Dogs Victoria always provide their services whether or not a person has a funding package through NDIS or otherwise. So they rely heavily on the kindness of donations to give freedom, independence and mobility to a person living with blindness or low vision.
