Bridgeland’s Howl-O-Ween Fest again proved ‘paw-pular’ with area residents, drawing more than 4,000 to the annual pooch party held Oct. 29.
Event-goers donated more than $1,200 for local pet rescue groups amid several stage shows, performances by the Houston Canine Frisbee Disc Club and Dog Gone Fun Agility, the Splash Dogs dock-diving competition and Foundry Church’s fall festival.
“This was another ‘howling’ success,” says Peter Houghton, Bridgeland’s vice president. “The day was gorgeous and the event was even better than last year, with more vendors, more entertainment and nearly 1,000 more people attending.”
Appearing this year were Johnny Peers and the Muttville Comix, Guennadi and his world-famous dog act and magician Lance Kibbey. Plus, costumed canines and their people competed to be “top dog” in a pooch fashion show hosted by KIAH-TV 39’s Maggie Flecknoe. Other highlights included a farmers’ market with pumpkin patch, bingo, trick-or-treating for kids and dogs and more than 30 pet vendors.
Howl-O-Ween Fest is just one of several events bringing people to Bridgeland this year. Thousands attended the annual Nature Fest held this spring, as well as racing events occurring throughout the year. Up next are a chili cook-off Dec. 3 and the Mistletoe Fun Run benefiting Run Over Cancer Dec. 4. Learn more about Bridgeland events at bridgeland.com/events.
