At Fox Pest Control, we’re huge fans of wet noses and furry faces. We’re also dedicated to giving back to the community. Moreover, when an opportunity to combine our two loves comes together, we’re always ready to get involved!
This past Halloween, the team at Fox Pest Control’s Baltimore Branch sponsored the 9th annual Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume Parade, which benefits city-wide programs put on by the Parks & Recreation department in the city of Hagerstown.
The Parade, which took place on October 30, at the dog park in Hagertown’s Fairgrounds Park, had 39 canine participants ranging from teacup-sized to large breeds. For the event, dogs and their owners dress in their best costumes and strut the runway vying for prizes and top honors in seven different categories⸺ Best Friends (Kids 12 and under), Movie/Celebri”dog, DIY Costume, Owner/Pest Look-A-Like, Too Stink’n Cute, Hottest & Coolest Dog, and Judge’s Choice.
In addition to the parade, attendees are invited to participate in family-friendly activities and explore local pet vendors. This year’s Parade drew in more than 150 attendees, including Michael Kalandros, local Fox Pest Control technician and dog lover.
“The event was a lot of fun,” shared Kalandros. “The creativity that goes into the costumes is amazing. And, the dogs really seem to enjoy their time in the spotlight.”
