Doggone Halloween Parade

Doggone Halloween Parade

The annual Doggone Halloween is back for another edition! And we are making it even bigger this year as the lineup of fun will be extended to the Steps at Downtown Crossing in addition to the traditional location of Summer Street Plaza!

The free event, to be hosted on Saturday, October 29th, from 12-2:30 pm (rain date on October 30th), helps put our neighborhood in the Halloween spirit, as dozens of community members showcase their beloved--and costumed--canines. Our panel of judges will declare winners in the categories of Best Costume, Scariest Costume, Cutest Costume, and Best Dog & Human Duo. Fantastic prizes, including hotel stays and gift baskets, from the neighborhood will be up for grabs!

If you plan to enter your pet in the costume parade and contest, you MUST pre-register. Space is limited. 

In addition to the parade, there will be several dog-themed vendors, caricature artists, face painting, numerous fall-themed photo spots, giveaways, and delicious treats for all!

Prizes: We are building great prize packs - some of the prizes include: A night stay at the Ritz-Carlton Boston, the Hyatt Centric Fanueil Hall, gift packs from Tasty Burger and more!!

Vendor Village: We are so proud to invite great pet-friendly vendors to join in the festivities. Confirmed vendors include:
