Pet Contest

The Taste of Annandale is pet friendly! If you bring your dog, cat, or other pet 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.

There will be three categories: best costume; most creative, handmade pet outfit; and best duo or group, which could be two or more dressed-up pets or a combination of pets and people.

If you need some inspiration, check out the pet costumes at Chico’s (6349 A Columbia Pike, Falls Church).

The winners will be selected by a panel of professional judges: Teri Thornstein, the owner of Coco the Couture Cat; Diane Roadcap, the animal communicator; and Giovanna Di Biccari, the creator of the Embark! TV YouTube channel and the owner of Willie, who’s running for mayor of Annan-tail.

Chico’s is providing great prizes for the winners plus mini-makeovers for pets and people.

More details coming soon.
