The 10th Annual Howl-O-Ween Fest is set for October 27 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Josey Lake, Bridgeland’s newest amenity, conveniently located off Bridgeland Creek Parkway between Fry Road and the Grand Parkway. Last year we had nearly 9,000 people and their beloved furry friends join us for a beautiful October day, and we raised nearly $3,000 for our rescue groups who were onsite doing pet adoptions and recruiting foster families.
Headlining the stage this year will be The Canine Stars, North America’s Premier Stunt Dog Show! This is an exciting extreme sports production for family entertainment-highlighting popular dog sports such as dock diving, freestyle frisbee disc, flyball racing and more. They have multiple breeds of dogs and mixes who have been rescued or adopted from shelters.
Additional acts on the stage this year will be a K9 demonstration and award winning magician and illusionist, Lanney Kibby. Families will have a great time in the fall fest area that will include bounce houses, an obstacle course and more! Other favorite activities for the day will be pumpkin decorating, trick-or-treating for kids and pets, roaming entertainment, face painting, a doggie fashion show, farmers market, and delicious cuisine from the food trucks.
While the entertainment and most activities are complimentary, a few will fetch a small fee and all proceeds will be donated to our participating rescue groups.
