The Taste of Annandale is pet friendly! If you bring your dog, cat, lizard, ferret, or whatever pet you have decked out in a Halloween costume you could win a prize from Chico’s Natural Pet Market in Barcroft Plaza.
Chico’s owner Danielle Areco organized and hosted the pet contest at last year’s Taste of Annandale and is doing it again for this year’s festival.
Tentative plans call for the 2018 pet contest to have three categories: best overall costume; most creative, handmade pet outfit; and best duo, which could be two pets dressed as a couple or an owner and pet dressed in complementary costumes.
If you need some inspiration, Chico’s has summertime pet outfits in stock now and will have more costumes for the Halloween season.
