Unleash the Halloween spirit and get your paws on some fantastic costumes for the Coral Gables Museum’s Annual Doggie Halloween Costume Contest! This tail-wagging extravaganza has become a staple in our Coral Gables’ trick or Treat on the Mile. Come strut your pup’s stuff as we award special prizes to the best dressed pets.

Our esteemed panel of judges will have the tough job of selecting this year’s top dogs, but whether you leave with a trophy or not, every participant is a winner in our eyes! Don’t miss this howl-o-ween celebration!

This year’s contest will have 5 winning categories:

  • Dynamic Duo – For The Ultimate Pet-Owner Pairing!
  • Best DIY – Crafty Canines Welcome (Extra Points for Upcycling)!
  • Pup Icons – Calling All Canine Celeb Lookalikes!
  • Funniest Fido – The Tail-Wagging Comedian of the Pack
