Halloween Dog Walk and Costume Contest

Join the Howl-O-ween fun, and help raise funds for the Viroqua Bark Park all while walking your dog!

Through cooperative efforts, the Viroqua Bark Park has been extensively planned and designed for year-round dog exercise, socialization, and safety. An off-leash dog park where people and their dogs can enjoy playing and socializing in a park-like setting. While not yet opened, the key to develop the park is funding through donations and great events like this! Join us on October 27 in Eckhart Park to learn more about the Viroqua Bark Park.

All dogs and humans are encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costumes! A doggie costume contest will take place at Noon, with four size categories (Large, medium, small, and toy dogs) judges by three SURPRISE Judges!

Many people plan to join, although they don't have a dog, or their dogs can't participate. We welcome everyone to come learn more about the Viroqua Bark Park and join in the fun!
