2024 Spooky Pooch Parade

October 12 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Get ready for a doggone good time! Spooky Pooch Parade will bring the bark to Madison once again for LakewoodAlive’s 17th Annual Spooky Pooch Parade, a celebration of costumed canines taking place Saturday, October 12 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Madison Park in Lakewood’s Birdtown Neighborhood.

Registration will open in late summer so stay tuned!

Sponsored by Ken Ganley Subaru, LakewoodAlive’s family-friendly Spooky Pooch Parade consists of a free-to-attend festival at Madison Park, a parade along Madison Avenue and surrounding streets and an awards presentation. A favorite autumn tradition for Northeast Ohio dog lovers, this community festival represents a one-of-a-kind event within the region, providing a tail-wagging good time for canine and human guests alike.

Festivities get underway with the Spooky Pooch Festival beginning at 12:30 p.m. at Madison Park, during which attendees can enjoy entertainment, pumpkin painting for kids and dog-related vendors and local businesses. The much-anticipated dog parade commences at 2 p.m. Dogs dressed in their most festive Halloween costumes will strut their stuff along Madison Avenue. Judges will award top-three prizes beginning at approximately 3:15 p.m. in the following categories: Best Pooch & Child, Best Pooch & Adult, Best Pooch & Group, Spookiest Pooch and Best in Show.

Spooky Pooch Parade Route: Parade will exit the park to Athens Avenue, turn right onto Clarence Avenue, turn right onto Madison Avenue, turn right onto Halstead Avenue and turn right onto Athens Avenue back into Madison Park. This is the same route as the past three years.
