2021 Howl-o-ween Pet Parade and Virtual Costume Contest

The 2021 Howl-o-ween Pet Parade is supported by primary sponsor Wolf Next Door Coffee, as well as a number of downtown businesses, including Coon’s Card & Gift Shop, Koto, the Halloween Museum Salem, Partridge in a Bear Tree, Wicked Good Books, and Black Cat Tours.

Salem is going to the dogs (and cats and lizards and bunnies), and we couldn’t be happier about it! 

Salem Main Streets is very pleased to announce the return of the annual Howl-o-ween Pet Parade, this year in a combined format. The physical pet parade will return to Derby Wharf on Saturday, Oct. 9 at 1 pm, with the usual fun, costumes, and contest with prizes. In addition, we are fortunate to continue our 2020 partnership with Creative Collective to produce a virtual contest for those who are not able to join us on Oct. 9th.
