When: Wednesday, October 31, 2012 from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM

At Fairchild’s Howl-o-ween event, now in its fourth year, guests can take advantage of a great opportunity to enjoy special activities just for pups as they parade through Fairchild’s lush surroundings all the while showing off their Halloween costumes. Guests and their dog can hop on a special 1:00 p.m. doggy tram ride too!!

Enjoy samplings of 100% natural food and treats including doggie beer courtesy of Pepe Le Pooche Resort & Spa pet boutique. Get in on their raffle for a free grooming and products boutique offering unique styles for your pooch, personalized collars, leather leashes, and much more! Shake Shack will be giving away Pooch-ini® comp cards redeemable at local Shake Shack locations. Pooch-ini is a chilly treat for those with four feet featuring ShackBurger® dog biscuits, peanut butter sauce and vanilla frozen custard.

Now that's something to wag your tail about!

Howl-o-ween Rules:

  • To protect our plant collections, please keep your dogs on the path or on grassy areas. Dogs are not permitted to walk onto planting beds. 
  • Dogs must be current on all vaccinations and have a current rabies tag attached to their collar.
  • Dogs must be leashed at all times and under the control of their handlers. Do not unleash your dog at any time.
  • Dog handlers are required to clean-up after their dogs.  Dog handlers must use "doggie bags" and dispose of them in the designated receptacles.
  • Aggressive dogs are not permitted in the garden. Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden reserves the right to refuse entry to, or remove, any dog thought to be dangerous to visitors or other dogs.
  • Dogs in heat are prohibited from entering the garden.
