CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WBOY) — If you’re a pet owner who wants to get your fur baby involved in the Halloween spirit, here are some events specifically for them.
Howl-O-Ween Doggie Trick or Treat
This event at the Morgantown Botanic Garden is on Oct. 28 from 4-6:30 p.m. Vendors will set up along the Reservoir Loop Trail to hand out dog treats, so owners should bring something to collect the treats in. There will also be a pet costume contest with prizes. The event is free, but participants should register ahead of time at this link with the number of dogs and people who will be in attendance. Dogs must be leashed, and owners are expected to clean up after their pets.
The Humane Society of Harrison County is hosting this event on Sunday, Oct. 30 from noon to 2 p.m. There will be a costume contest, trick contest, “ghost poop hunt,” and pie-eating contest. Food from Drifter Doughnuts will be available for owners. It costs $15 to register one adult and one dog, and then $5 more for every additional dog. Children younger than 18 can attend for free.
