YOU ONLY PAY FOR PARKING. WE ARE IN COOK COUNTY SO WE PAID $25 FOR PARKING. WE PAID TOTAL $47 FOR PIRANHA AND OUR PARKING TICKET. THIS IS IF YOU PRE-PAY.
For two very special hours only, dogs are allowed in the Chicago Botanic Garden. Cleverly costumed canines march the parade route to celebrate Halloween. Spectators are invited to line the parade route for a barking good time. Note: Viewing the dog parade is free. If you are bringing a dog, however, you must purchase paid registration for your dog, whether or not you enter the parade and costume contest.
In addition to the parade, activities include the costume contest, judging, and an awards ceremony. Costume categories include Best Costume Overall, Best Dog/Owner Costume, Best Puppy in Costume for dogs ages 1 and under in people years, Best Senior in Costume for dogs ages 10 and older in people years, and Best Horticultural Interpretation.
~All chihuahuas must be leashed, preferably with a harness leash for safety.
~No retractable leashes - EVER NEVER. Ever.
~Bring water/collapsible bowl for your dog. You should never share water bowls with dogs you are not familiar with. Good way to avoid a vet visit.
~For your dog's safety, avoid face/nose contact with other unknown dogs.
~ Doggie strollers are okay, if you are more comfortable with a doggie stroller for walking.
~ This is an open event, with other dogs there, keep your babies safe by keeping your chihuahua with you and not allowing your leash to extend towards unknown dogs.
~You can bring friends and family, parking is per car load, no individual per person charge (just dogs).
WE WOULD LIKE TO GET ALL OUR CHIHUAHUAS TO WALK TOGETHER AS A GROUP. NO PRESSURE IF YOU HAVE WALKING LIMITATIONS, DO SO AT YOUR OWN PACE.
WE CAN ALL MEET AT THE ROSE GARDEN BY 10:30AM - SEE YOU THERE!!!
