Howl-o-ween Costume Party For Dogs At Fairfield Hills 

By Andrew Gorosko

Participants at the town’s “Howl-o-ween” party held on Saturday, October 27, at Fairfield Hills took Halloween one step further, by costuming their dogs in fanciful garb celebrating the spooky season.

Several dozen dogs with their owners in tow displayed their Halloween finery in the light of day in the area near Newtown Hall at the campus.

The event served as a fundraiser for Newtown Park & Bark, a group that plans an off-leash dog park at Fairfield Hills. Owners made $5 donations per dog entered in the Howl-o-ween activities. The town Parks and Recreation Department sponsored the event.

Prizes were awarded for the best dog costume, the scariest costume, the cutest costume, the funniest costume, the most original costume, and for the owner and dog who wore the most similar costume.

Activities at Howl-o-ween included a relay race, bobbing for hot dogs, a treasure hunt, the best dog trick, and the best dog singer/howler.

Also, dogs and their owners played a modified version of tic-tac-toe known as tic-tac-paw.

People interested in information on the project to create an off-leash dog park may contact Friends of Newtown Park & Bark at www.NewtownParkandBark.org or on Facebook.
