The Monster Mutt Dash is a 5k race along with a shorter one-mile Fun Walk for people and their pooches who prefer a more casual pace. The race will be followed by ARF’s FREE Annual Howl-O-Ween AfterParty for both people and pets – that’s open to the public!
Grab your leash and enjoy a spooktacular event including race awards ceremony, beer, pet costume contests, raffle baskets, vendors, tasty food, music and fun lead by Emcee Ray Carr! Various canine competitions including musical hoops and bobbing for weenies, along with pictures with your pet, ask the trainer and MORE! See BELOW for a full line-up of features and vendors!
