Calling Kids & Canines… Midtown Business Association to Present Halloween Festival & Pooch Parade
Calling Kids & Canines… Midtown Business Association to Present Halloween Festival & Pooch Parade

Plans are afoot for the Midtown Business Association (MBA) to present the crowd-favorite Midtown Halloween Festival & Pooch Parade on Saturday, October 31, 2015 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Marshall Park (915 27th Street).  Sponsored by the Sutter District – with restaurants that include BarWest, Blue Cue, Café Bernardo, Centro Cocina Mexicana, Harlow’s, INK Eats & Drinks, Paragary’s Midtown & Red Rabbit Kitchen & Bar – and the Food Literacy Center, the canine-friendly event is highlighted by the much-anticipated “pooch parade” scheduled to take place at 2 p.m. that day. Four-legged friends will strut by while competing in an entertaining costume contest that will include playful prizes for the winning pooches.

In addition, Midtown’s mobile off-leash “Pop-Up Dog Park” will be set up to encourage canine-friendly communication for pooches 30 pounds or less (due to the structural limits of the fencing).  Plus, a variety of free family-friendly activities will be available that include face painting, balloon animal creations, a bounce house, photo booth and healthy snacks provided by the Food Literacy Center, hands-on arts and crafts, entertaining live music, and more.

Early that day, special and spirited activities will be available at the popular Midtown Farmers Market that takes place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on 20th Street between J and K.  Costumes are encouraged and children of all ages are invited to take part in a fun and free mini pumpkin scavenger hunt throughout the market.  

“We’re excited to continue to offer a variety of eclectic, fun and family-friendly Halloween activities in Midtown,” said Emily Baime Michaels, Executive Director of the Midtown Business Association.  “And we’re especially thrilled to also highlight our four-legged friends that are clearly cherished by our amazingly supportive Midtown community.”

The Halloween Festival & Pooch Parade, Pop-Up Dog Park and the Midtown Farmers Market are presented and supported by the Midtown Business Association (MBA), which is committed to ensuring Midtown remains a thriving center for culture, creativity and vibrancy.  For more information about these activities or the Midtown Business Association, please visit www.exploremidtown.org
