Dressing up at Fido's Festival USA

"Last year we had a wonderful turnout for our dog wedding and we learned how seriously people take their fashions for dogs."

Fido's Festival USA®'s OctoberFETCH is a fall-themed festival where family dogs can compete in Halloween costumes, audition for a talent scout, and be entered into an owner look-alike contest. Physical competitions include obstacle courses, Frisbee catches, Lure Racing, and even a small-legged dog race. In addition to contests, the festival offers local experts in the dog world as well as celebrity guests who will be providing instruction or entertainment. Activities include dock diving, dog sled demonstrations, and even a champion disc-catching team. There will be plenty of food for humans, treats for dogs, play areas, and unique dog products. For the third year in a row, shelters and rescues will participate for free to encourage dog adoption. Fido’s Festival USA® will be held October 9-10 at the Salem County Fairgrounds in Woodstown, NJ.

"This will be our best year yet," says Kathleen DeLuca, founder of Fido's Festival USA® and owner of Events Plus, Inc., a special events and meeting planning company. "Last year we had a wonderful turnout for our dog wedding and we learned how seriously people take their fashions for dogs. It only seemed natural to provide them with another dress-up opportunity in the form of a Halloween event."
