A DOG-GONE SPOOKY HALLOWEEN
A BASH at Sepulveda Basin Off-Leash Dog Park
Encino - Dogs -- big and small, short legs and tall and hairy and scary -- showed up in festive attire and looking for a dog-gone spooktacular time at Sepulveda Basin Off-Leash Dog Park's Halloween Bash on Sunday, October 30, 2011.
The Department of Recreation and Parks and volunteers from the Sepulveda Basin Off-Leash Dog Park Park Advisory Board hosted the event that featured a doggie costume contest, park clean-up and a free Halloween photo area for the participating pooches.
A Monster Clean-up of the dog park kicked-off the festivities. Volunteers helped fill holes, clean chairs and benches, and scoured the premises of any unwanted trash. At 4pm all of the costumed canines gathered to see if they won Spookiest, Most Original or Judges Choice. The three winners then battled for the coveted title of Best in Show, which went to Dorothy and her three furry friends The Lion, The Tin Man and The Scarecrow!!
Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all the volunteers and attendees. It truly was a dog-gone spooktacular Halloween this year at Sepulveda Basin Off-Leash Dog Park!!!
