For the last two decades, Lanier Animal Hospital has been hosting an annual costume Halloween Party for pets. This event has generated a bit of media coverage with prizes and refreshments for all participants.
"The idea was to bring our community of pet lovers together to celebrate their love for their animals," Lainer said. "Throughout the years we have had incredibly innovative costumes on dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, goats and horses. People who own animals tend to shower their pets with love. That same energy is very evident when parading their housemate in front of others."
The parade will take place on Sunday, Oct. 28, at the Kennedy Elementary School playground. Registration for the pet parade begins at 11:45 a.m. Judging begins at 12:15 p.m. Free admission. Call: (781)828-0101 for more information.
