From scary Scotties and precious poodles, to batty boys and gorgeous girls, The Shops at Highland Village will host a costume contest for dogs and children at its first Halloween celebration Haunts and Hounds on Saturday, October 30 from 3 pm to 6 pm. The event is free and open to everyone.
Haunts and Hounds benefits Southern Denton County Neighbor to Neighbor, a local non-profit organization that supports area social service agencies that serve needs such as emergency assistance, family counseling, medical support, and youth development programs.
“Southern Denton County Neighbor to Neighbor does so much for the people of our community, and all of us at The Shops at Highland Village believe in their mission and want to dedicate this event to give them the support they need,” says Kelly Smith, Consumer Marketing Manager for the center.
Judges will award prizes for the best, scariest, most creative and funniest costumes for dogs, owner-dog combos, children, and family costume themes. The costume contest is at 3 pm in the courtyard area between Blue Goose Cantina and Rockfish Seafood Grill.
“We’re expecting hundreds of costumed children and dogs to visit The Shops at Highland Village that day,” Smith says. “We’ll have live entertainment for parents and treat-or-treating for costumed kids ages 12 and under. It’s going to be a great family event.”
More information on Haunts and Hounds and a printable entry form for the costume contest will be available on September 27 at www.theshopsathighlandvillage.com.
