HOWL-WEEN PET PARADE
Bring your pet(s) dressed in their Halloween costume, their favorite outfit, or just their shining coat and join us for a howling good time in Centennial Park.
This activity has become a favorite for visitors and those families entering their pets.
Registration is available online, or from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the DDA’s information table in Centennial Park. The parade will begin at 2:00pm in front of the gazebo.
A Pet-Potty will be provided, so please be sure to make use of it for your pets. Pet Vendors will be selling a variety of clothing, treats, and pet essentials. Come see what they have to offer!
Taste some of the best chili Oxford has to offer!
Participating restaurants will begin cooking the signature chili early in the day, and the public will be able to sample these “chilling creations” for FREE beginning at 11:00am.
This year, the public will also participate in selecting a winner, so be sure to pick up a copy of the “People’s Choice Judging Sheet” to place your votes! A Panel will also select another winner!
