Halloween Pooch Parade

You’re invited to our canine costume paw-ty! Parade around the gardens with your pup during our fourth annual Halloween Pooch Parade.

Bring your favorite four-legged friend to Cheekwood for our fourth annual Pooch Parade! Costumed canines and their owners are invited to parade around the gardens for a fun morning stroll, costume contest, and even a popsicle eating contest for a cool treat for all the pups out there. Categories for the costume contest include Judge’s Favorite, Most Creative, and Best Owner/Dog Combo.

Halloween Pooch Parade is included with general admission, and free for Cheekwood members. Because this is such a paw-pular event, we encourage you to reserve tickets for a morning or afternoon arrival! Morning arrivals may arrive anytime between 9 am – 12:30 pm, and afternoon arrivals may arrive anytime between 12:30 pm – 4 pm.
