Port Melbourne's Howl-O-Ween Paw Parade - October 28

Celebrate Halloween with Port Melbourne's HOWL-O-WEEN Paw Parade! 

Dress your pooch in the scariest, wackiest and paws-itively adorable costume this Halloween “Port’s HOWL-O-Ween”.

On Sunday, 28 October 2018, Port Melbourne proudly presents Port’s HOWL-O-Ween from 9am to midday, and a Trick-or-Treat Trail for the kids and their pups starting at 12pm till 4pm on Rouse Street, Port Melbourne. 

The event presents itself after last year’s successful HOWL-O-Ween which saw over 350 pooches and their owners in costume embark on the biggest Doggy Trick or Treat ever seen! 

This year event organisers are expecting the event to be bigger than ever, kicking off with a spooktacular parade down Rouse Street, giving participants the chance to win incredible prizes for costumes and tricks.

After the parade, kids and their pooches can embark on the trick-or-treat trail starting at the haunted jumping castle in Rouse Street! And for the adults - the exclusive After Party will be held at The Tipsy Cow, Port Melbourne’s dog-friendly bar.

Registration is $15 at, and all monies will be donated directly to Guide Dogs Victoria.
 All doggies registered early by October 3, 2018 will also go into the draw to win HOWL-O-Ween Pet Portrait from Erin King Photographer.

Organisers are also looking for clever pooches, party pups and doggone funny dogs to share their talents with Australia. You can submit your entry into their Video “Tricks” Competition by posting on their Facebook page and don't forget to use the following hashtag #HOWLTricks when posting your video!

This Port Melbourne Halloween event will showcase exhibitors, entertainment for young and old, and a series of competitions and contests throughout the morning. Clubs can register as a group and go in the draw to win $1,000 for the best dressed club.

With Rouse Street Port Melbourne having more family canines than any other suburb in Australia this HOWL-O-Ween Paw Parade is sure to be popular amongst the community – where everyone is welcome to bring along their furry friends of all shapes and sizes – it’s an awesome op-paw-tunity to bond with your best friend as well as make some new lifetime pals.
