Sponsorship and Vendor Opportunities Now Available for Popular Canine Event

LakewoodAlive proudly announces Discount Drug Mart as the Title Sponsor for the 12th Annual Spooky Pooch Parade.  Costumed canines take center stage on Saturday, October 19, when this popular canine event returns to Downtown Lakewood from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Spooky Pooch Parade consists of a festival within Kauffman Park (15450 Detroit Avenue), a parade through Lakewood’s downtown business district on Detroit Avenue and an awards presentation.  This Halloween tradition is a favorite for Northeast Ohio dog lovers and their families. The Spooky Pooch Parade is a one-of-a-kind community festival, providing a tail-wagging good time for canine and human guests alike.  Last year’s Spooky Pooch Parade drew more than 350 canines and an estimated crowd of 3,000 people.

Discount Drug Mart is serving as Title Sponsor of the Spooky Pooch Parade for the fifth consecutive year.

Discount Drug Mart, an Ohio-based, full-service drug store, has served Northeast Ohio for five decades, priding itself on superior customer service, low prices and convenient one-stop shopping.  This longtime local company has two locations in Lakewood (13123 Detroit Avenue and 15412 Detroit Avenue), the latter of which is located just south of Kauffman Park, the site of the Spooky Pooch Parade.

“We are excited to have Discount Drug Mart serve as the Title Sponsor of our Spooky Pooch Parade for a fifth consecutive year,” said Ian Andrews, LakewoodAlive’s Executive Director.  “Discount Drug Mart represents a tremendous partner to LakewoodAlive and we appreciate the many valuable contributions this local company continues to make within the Lakewood community.”

Sponsorship opportunities and vendor applications are now available for this much-anticipated autumn event.  For more information regarding serving as a sponsor or vendor for the Spooky Pooch Parade, please contact Devon Chodzin, LakewoodAlive’s Event & Volunteer Coordinator, at 216-521-0655.
