Starting tonight, you will have three chances to make your canine or feline companion look visibly sad and miserable among fellow uncomfortable and awkward pets this Halloween season.
Tonight, Canine Culture (8110 Hampson St., 373-5141) hosts a costume contest with pet-friendly trick-or-treats from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Enter your dog in the contest for $5, with net proceeds benefiting LA/SPCA.
Tomorrow night, Old Point Bar (545 Patterson Drive, Algiers, 364-0950) hosts Howl at the Moon, a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Louisiana, with costume contests for groups or individuals (and pets) from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunday, in keeping with the Halloween spirit with a nod to Tuesdays election, head to Lafrienere Park (3000 Downs Blvd., Metairie) for the inaugural Pet Fest for a patriotic costume contest. This years theme, Petriotic Party: Democats and Repuplicans, should give you an idea for costume plans. Anticipate a lot of these. Or something more obscure maybe a Gayle Quinnell will show up and confuse a black Labrador with an Afghan hound.
