Howl-O-Ween event is for the dogs

Put your best paw forward and bring your dog to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden for our special Howl-O-Ween event on Thursday, October 31 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. Dress up your pup and enter the costume contest, get some trick-or-treats at vendor booths, and stop by local animal organization tables for information and freebies. The day features tons of special activities for dogs and their owners as they parade through the Garden in their best Halloween costumes. What better way to spend Halloween than with man’s best friend? 

Now in its fifth year, Howl-O-Ween is one of the few times a year when Fairchild opens its gates to our four-legged friends. Now is the perfect chance to let your dog explore the Garden. Please see Fairchild’s Howl-O-Ween webpage for rules and details. 

Established in 1938 and comprising 85 acres in Miami, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is a non-profit organization dedicated to exploring, explaining and conserving the world of tropical plants. The world-renowned plant collections feature palms, cycads, orchids, tropical fruit trees and more. Fairchild has the largest education program of any metropolitan area, reaching more than 200,000 schoolchildren each year with environmental programs like The Fairchild Challenge. It aims to inspire a greater knowledge and love for plants and gardening so that all can enjoy the beauty and bounty of the tropical world. 

Fairchild is located at 10901 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables.
