Annual Howl-Ween Canine Costume Parade Rescheduled for Sunday, Oct. 30

Canine Weather Alert: Annual Howl-Ween Canine Costume Parade Rescheduled for Sunday, Oct. 30 Due To Threat Of Inclement Weather

With the weather forecast calling for rain and possible snow showers tomorrow, Saturday, October 29, Canine Executives have met in closed meetings and decided that nobody will “rain on their parade.” Therefore, the 5th Annual Howl-Ween: Corky’s Canine Costume Parade and Paws for a Cause Event will be moved to its rain date,  Sunday, October 30, from 1:00 p.m.-5 p.m.  The parade will start at 1 p.m.

While the threat of inclement weather has postponed the event from Saturday to Sunday, canines from all over the Tri-State area as well as their owners will still take part in this spectacular celebration in the picturesque Village of Cold Spring Harbor. The celebration, produced by Nightingale PR, features an exciting street sale, inflatable rides for children in the park, live music and the most elaborate parade of canines in costumes on Long Island. The parade will begin at 1 p.m. at the corner of Spring Street and Main Street (25A) as spectators line the street and, for a few minutes, Main Street will be transformed into a “cat walk” where canines will model their finest costumes as they march to the tune: “Who Let the Dogs Out.” There is a suggested donation of $10 per parade entry with a percentage of proceeds to be donated to support “rescue dogs and dogs that rescue.”

The parade will end at Cold Spring Harbor Park where the canine celebrities will be warmly greeted by “pup-parazzi” and have a chance to enjoy live music and fun activities throughout the afternoon. In addition, Cold Spring Harbor Village will be declared “Corky’s Canine Friendly Town” for the day and canines and their owners will be welcomed with open paws to browse the shops and experience the beauty of this charming village. Another highlight of the afternoon will be the first annual “Howl-Ween Hot Dog Eating Contest,” sponsored by the Cold Spring Harbor Deli, which will take place at 2:30 p.m.

Sponsors for this annual event include Village Tattler, Cold Spring Harbor Main Street Association, Nightingale PR, Nightingale & Partners Real Estate, LI Creations, Westy Self Storage, College Hunks Hauling Junk, Neighbor Newspapers, Times Beacon Record Newspapers, Village Connection Magazine,  Cold Spring Harbor Deli, Rookies and Top Bunz.

The recommended donation to take part in this amazing event is $10 per dog. In addition, participants are asked to bring a donation of pet food (drop off at Nightingale & Partners, 93 Main Street) to support the Pet Pantry operated by Long Island Cares, Inc. – The Harry Chapin Food Bank.
