Ghastly greetings! Wag-o-Weekend is almost here, meaning that your four-legged friend’s favorite Halloween event is happening soon. The organizers kicked off the spooky season with a special wine tasting last week to gear up for the main event. And we’re happy to announce that Wag-o-Ween is this weekend. Now in its 17th year, the pet-centric event will take place Oct. 22 and 23 throughout Savannah’s historic downtown and the Starland District.
Wag-o-Ween attracts more than 2,000 participants each year, providing pets and their humans with a fun opportunity to don their Halloween costumes and receive treats and goodies from more than 150 local businesses. In addition to the trick-or-treating, there will also be a raffle, costume contest, photography stations and more. And you can look forward to fun wiener races at Pulaski Square during the weekend as well.
Wag-o-Ween is one of Savannah’s most beloved fundraisers, and the proceeds will help support local animal rescues, community spay and neuter programs, and community educational programs. Tickets are just $10 and they include a wristband, doggy treat bags, and a trick-or-treat map directing you to all the participating businesses around town. You’ll need one ticket per pooch. So get your tickets, coordinate your costumes and prepare to have a blast!
