My favorite event of the Halloween season is happening again this year: the Silver Lake Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume Pageant!

Silver Lake Neighborhood council tells me they hung up 20 laminated flyers for this Halloween party all around Silver Lake this week, and someone took them all down! What kind of jackass would do such a thing??? TO THE POOR DOGS?!  So here’s more on the dog parade.

Event Dets for Dogs in Halloween costumes

Sunday, Oct 27, 2013

3Pm to 5 PM

Inside the Small Dog Park

Free, with lots of great prizes!

5th year of this fun event for dogs and dog lovers. The prizes I saw were pretty fancy, with some nice gift baskets, etc.

Fun even without a dog!

I don’t have a dog, but I have promoted shelter dogs on Facebook for years, so I’m a passionate observer. And I was anxious to try out my new cell phone last year, which has a really excellent camera – the best camera in the Virgin Mobile lineup: HTC One V.  And it didn’t disappoint!

Many of the costumes were homemade, which is so fun, but no matter how simple or complicated the costumes were, the dogs, obvious joy, patience, and good nature made them all standouts. It was hard to get them to stay still, sure, but that was part of the challenge.
