The 15th Annual Great PUPkin Dog Costume Contest is on for Saturday, October 26th (rain date Sunday, October 27th). The contest time is NOON SHARP, with registration opening at around 11:00 a.m. on the monument plaza in good ol' Fort Greene Park. As in the past several years, the contest location will be at the bottom of the monument stairs. Suggested donation is $5.00 per dog, but we'll take what you'll give us (we have to cover the costs for renting the P.A., buying rosettes, etc).
PUPkin will once again be held in conjunction with Fort Greene Park Conservancy's Halloween Fest for kids, which features the ever-popular hay rides, the amazing pumpkin patch, and fabulous face painting, starting at noon. Visit their site for up-to-date information. And this year, the Fort Greene Park Greenmarket will be hosting a Harvest Festival on the same date, Saturday, October 26th. There will be portraits, and apple cider donut eating contest, and more, right at the greenmarket space from 9:00-12:30.You've come to expect dazzling prizes, discerning judges, and major drama from the PUPkin, and this year will be no different.
Make sure you stop by Brooklyn Bark's tent for free-bees!
Rain date: 10/27
