The Kiwanis Club of Houma will host its first Howl-O-Ween Dog Parade and Festival from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, October 19, 2019, at the Courthouse Square in Downtown Houma.
The event kicks off with a short canine parade, after which awards for best dog costume, best owner/pet look alike costume, obedience, and others categories will be presented. There will also be a howling contest and the coronation of a king and queen based on essays submitted from the dog’s point of view.
Various dog-related vendors will have booths presenting their wares and offering tips on grooming and pet care.
The event is a fundraiser for the Kiwanis through sponsors and donations from participants. The Kiwanis Club sponsors a number of activities benefitting the Houma community, with special focus on children, such as the Terrific Kids program in local schools, the Play It Again Terrebonne instrument loan program to local school bands, Books for Bikes, scholarships to NSU and Fletcher, high school Key Clubs, and volunteering to help with events of other local non-profits. Tax deductible donation can be made to Kiwanis Club of Houma Foundation.
