The Bourse Food Hall is teaming up with our friends at Morris Animal Refuge, to host an outdoor family-friendly fall fest, featuring a pet costume contest, photo opportunities, treats for two-legged and four-legged attendees, raffle with pet themed prizes, music, and more on Saturday, October 16 from 1-3 pm.

The Bourse and Morris Animal Refuge invite Philadelphians and their furry friends to the food hall’s 5th Street patio for the ultimate fall fashion show. Tickets are $10 online ($12 at the door) and include pet entry into the contest, a strut down the red carpet, plus one fall-themed photo of pets in their Howl-o-ween best. All proceeds from tickets sales will benefit Morris Animal Refuge and can be purchased here.

A panel of esteemed judges will determine winners in the following categories: Best Overall, Best Philly “Jawn” and Best Team Costume (can be two pets or owner/pet, etc.) Winners in each category will receive a prize and trophy.

Menagerie Coffee will be offering puppycinos, and for paw-tastic photos, a replica of the iconic Ghost Buster car will be on-site for pet-owners and their furry friends to take pictures along with a local friendly neighborhood ghost-specialist from the Philadelphia/New Jersey Ghost Busters who will be investigating and busting away ghosts lurking around to support the cause.

To continue the fun at this years Howl-O-Ween, music, interactive pup paintings, and outdoor games such as cornhole and football toss will be available for use, and fun fall-themed decorations will be set up on the patio for additional photo taking and celebration.
