Howl-O-Ween Fest Returns Oct. 21

The 9th Annual Howl-O-Ween Fest returns to Bridgeland on October 21 with Sara Carson and  The Super Collies, contestants on this season of America’s Got Talent.

Sara, one of the top dog trick instructors in the world, leads The Super Collies. Her talented group has also been featured on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Along with her dog, Hero, Sara recently made it to the finals on America’s Got Talent, placing fifth overall.

Hero is no stranger to TV either, starring in several commercials for Petco, the Family Channel and the Pet Network.

It’s been a whirlwind few years for Sara and her trained dogs. She started training dogs when she was 8 and by the time she was 17, she’d made it to The Late Show with David Letterman. Five years later, she beat out almost 300,000 people who auditioned for America’s Got Talent. Now, those in attendance at Bridgeland’s Howl-O-Ween Fest will get a chance to see her act up close!

Sara and The Super Collies will be joined by the Dynamo Dogs, Houston Disc Dogs and The Amazing Blake. All four groups will be part of a lineup that features new acts performing every 30 minutes. The dog-centric holiday event will take place at Bridgeland’s Oak Meadow Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 21.

Think your doggie is talented, too? Sign them up for a doggie fashion show and costume contest! The top three winners will receive prizes.

Don’t have a four-legged friend to bring? Local animal rescue groups including Adore Houston, Friends for Life, Houston Collie Rescue, Houston SPCA, New Best Friend, Puppy Up Spring-Houston, Great Dane Rescue of SE Texas and Special Pals will be on hand offering pet adoptions.

Howl-O-Ween Fest will also feature more than 20 local Houston food trucks, kids’ activities sponsored by The Foundry, a pumpkin patch, a farmers market, pumpkin decorating, face painting, dock diving with the Houston Disc Dogs and a large vendor area with pet products and services.

Admission and most activities at Howl-O-Ween Fest are free of charge although a few will require a small fee. All proceeds from the event will be donated to participating rescue groups, which have been sheltering animals and assisting with foster placements during the lengthy recovery process of Hurricane Harvey.
