Although it may not seem like it, fall is upon us and that can only mean one thing for BPC dog-owners: the Sixteenth Annual BPC Dogs Halloween Puppy Parade will be here soon. The parade will be held on Saturday, October 28, starting at noon, on the BPC Esplanade at the SOUTH Cove wooden arbor. The parade will proceed from the South Cove in a northerly direction on the Esplanade to the plaza area near the North Cove Marina (where the volleyball courts are usually set up) where your dog (and maybe you) will be judged on your costumes. Prizes will be awarded for Best Costume – Large Breed; Best Costume – Small Breed; Best Owner & Dog Combo; Best Dog Team Costume. A Tail-Wagging Contest for Small & Large Dogs will be held again this year. We will also have a Raffle for exciting prizes. All dog owners and their dogs (in costume) should meet promptly at 11:50 a.m. on the Esplanade at the South Cove Arbor. Spread the word with the flyer linked here. Rain date: Sunday, October 29, same time and place.
