Dog Costume Contest

Dog-Eared Books, Treats on a Leash, and the Ames Animal Shelter join forces to bring you a Dog Costume Contest  at the farmer’s market on Saturday, October 8, between 10 – 11 AM!

In a booth in front of Tom Evans Park, judges from Dog-Eared Books, Treats on a Leash, and the Ames Animal Shelter will score your pet’s costume on cuteness, originality, and personality. We’ll award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes as well as a special prize for best literary-inspired costume.

You can register in advance or in person the day of the event. There is a five dollar entry fee to support Ames Animal Shelter. Those who just want to enjoy a cute view are welcome to gently and lovingly applaud each dog as they pass. 🙂

WHEN: Saturday, October 8, 10 – 11 AM
WHERE: Tom Evans Park
