Canines in Costumes



Council Bluffs, IA – Midlands Humane Society (MHS), a volunteer-led group, presents their 7th annual Canines In Costumes event on Sunday, October 18, 2015. The event will be held from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at Bayliss Park in beautiful downtown Council Bluffs, Iowa and all vaccinated dogs are welcome.

The afternoon will be filled with music, over 20 vendors offering goods and services for your pet(s), paw painting, photo booth, games with prizes for your B.F.F. (best furry friend) and our ever so popular costume parade around the park. The costume contest will have 3 categories: small dog, big dog, Best Group and “What the What?” Free Growloween treat bags for the first 100 parade entries.

MHS will have Wagbags and sweatshirts available for purchase to support the MHS Operating Fund. The Wagbags are filled with great items for dogs and their owners donated by local businesses. We will also have raffle baskets filled with snacks and goodies for the family pet.

“Come on out and enjoy this event with your family. The park will be filled with fun and entertainment for everyone,” said Terri Gach-Mils, MHS Event Chair.

Need to add a four-legged furry friend to your family? We will have several animals in attendance looking for their furever home.
