Rivers and Bluffs to Sponsor Canine Costume Contest

Dress your dog up in his/her favorite costume and join the fun at Rivers and  Bluffs Animal Shelter’s Canine Costume Contest. The Canine Costume Contest will be held on Saturday, October 20th, as part of the Prairie du Chien Oktoberfest activities. Costume contest participants are also invited to “Strut Your Mutt” and join RABAS volunteers and their pets as they start the day off with the Oktoberfest Parade at 10 a.m. The Oktoberfest Parade starts at Peoples State Bank and parade participants should arrive by 9:30 a.m. Registration for the Canine Costume Contest will take place prior to the parade and at the RABAS booth beginning at 2 p.m. People can also stop at the shelter during open hours (Monday – noon-7 p.m., Wednesday & Friday – noon-4 p.m. and Saturday – 9-1 p.m.) to sign up for the costume contest. Registration closes at 2:45 p.m. on the day of the event. There is no charge for registration.
The Canine Costume Contest will start at 3:15 p.m. and will include a short walk thru the “Fest” grounds to showcase the costumed canines. “Money talks”. Vote for your favorite costumed canine with a donation to Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter. The dog that garners the most monetary votes will be declared the winner. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 dogs. All donations will benefit Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization raising money for operating expenses.
