If you think that your pet is the cutest, smartest, most adorable thing ever, then enter your pet in the Halloween Costume Contest sponsored by Ely Animal Control, Pet Posse and Mayor Melody VanCamp.

On Oct. 25, The Pet Costume Contest will be held at Broadbent Park, 10:00 am -12:00 noon during the Ely Lions Club Pumpkin Chunkin.  There will be prizes for the scariest pet along with tasty treats and paws-itively perfect punch for those competing. There’s plenty of time to work your magic and create that perfect costume. And yes, humans can wear a costume too!

Entry forms can be picked up at Sew Krazy and the Animal Control Building. A $5 fee is required to enter which will be applied toward the spay and neuter program.

Proudly parade your pampered pet on the cat-walk.
