One thing is better than watching cute and funny dog videos online – watching cute and funny dogs with your own eyes. Even better, how to showcase your celebrity dog?

This is your chance to do two things – and more. On October 27th, the Oglethorp Fort Bach City Dog Park Committee and the North Georgia Animal Federation (NGAA) are teaming up to hold a dog parade and costume competition and autumn festival at the amphitheatre of the colonnade.

Howl-O-Ween is the name of the event, and its planning committee has been working overtime to ensure that everyone of every age and all who support their dog will succeed.

Howl-O-Ween is a joint fundraiser for the Dog Park Committee and the Animal Rescue Organization NGAA. “We will draw donations, make cake walks, we will have food, games, face painting and many other activities,” said committee member Valerie Hayes, who is also the vice president of the NGAA.

The highlight of the festival will be the dog parade and costume competition. There will be prizes in the category of the best DIY clothing, the most interesting, the best pop culture and the best owner dog appearance clothing. The cost of participating in a costume competition and parade is $5 per dog. There is no fee for attending this festival.

“It will be fun for everyone,” Hayes said. “Do they have dogs?”

Ogilvy Thorpe City Manager Jennifer Simpkins, who served on the Barker City Council and the Howl-O-Ween Planning Commission, plans to dress her dachshund, Charlie, from Winnie the Pooh. “Charlie is not eligible to participate in the competition,” Simpkins said. “But it would be fun to have him there. His short legs are as slow as the ears.”

“The city and the Buck City Council are happy to partner with the NGAA to host the event,” Simpkins said.

Hayes said she was impressed with how Barker City Council members could attract resources to help the holiday party. Simpkins agrees. “I am surprised at the work done by the committee over and over again. They always come forward.”

The NGAA will provide information on the use of animals and their rescue work at the event, and participants will be able to learn more about the dog park that will become part of the Oglethorpe Fort.

Hayes said that suppliers still have time to sign up for the Howl-O-Ween music festival. The cost per booth is $20. Food suppliers can call for more information.

“We are also very grateful for our donations and prizes,” Hayes said. “There are two good reasons for this.”
