Christian Stoinev and his pup, Scooby, headlined the show. Christian is a fifth-generation performer who travels the world showcasing his hand-balancing act. In 2014, Christian and Scooby were finalists on America’s Got Talent and can often be seen performing at NBA half-time shows.
Guests also enjoyed a variety of food trucks, kids’ activities sponsored by The Foundry, pumpkin decorating, trick-or-treating for pets and kids, roaming entertainment, a magic show, a multitude of pet product and service vendors, pet rescue groups that offered onsite adoptions and our annual favorite, the pooch fashion show and costume contest.
