This year's WoodRUFF Bark pet parade and costume contest is inspired by Dragon Con, one of the world's largest pop culture conventions that attracts thousands of people to Downtown each Labor Day Weekend. For Downtowners, Dragon Con is something of a holiday in its own right: a weekend filled with incredible costumes, positive energy, and plenty of fandom.
Save the Date: Doggy Con is bringing pup culture to Woodruff Park on Saturday, August 25 (the weekend before the convention) from 9:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. Strut your stuff in your best cosplay costumes before the big convention for a chance to win prizes...and eternal WoodRUFF Bark glory.
Doggy Con will feature a pet parade, costume contest, pup treats, doggy-...centric vendors, prizes, and much more.
Stay tuned for more event details, including registration, in the coming months. For now, mark your calendars and start planning your costumes!

9:00 a.m. Register your pet for the costume parade
