Spooky season is upon us and the scary costume ideas are flowing — but why should your pooch miss out on all the creepy fun? This year, the dogs of Melbourne will once again get their own version of a huge communal trick-or-treat, when the Howl-O-Ween Paw Parade makes its way through the streets of Port Melbourne on Sunday, October 29.

Furry friends from far and wide are invited to join in the roving festivities, which'll kick off with a group amble along Bay Street from 10am. Expect fur-shionable costumes galore, from the spooky to the adorable, as both hounds and their humans strut their stuff.

Paw Parade participants will also enjoy a dedicated trick-or-treat trail, along with entertainment and activities popping up along Rouse Street.

Entry to the parade costs $10 per pooch, with all fees going straight to support Guide Dogs Victoria.
