Can you imagine a puppy being anything but cute? Well, be prepared to be amazed and then scared when you meet the furry puppies and pets at this new Halloween pup crawl coming up at the Houston Arboretum!

A Pup Crawl and Pet Expo has been organized by the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center on Sunday, 10 October 2021 but with a twist. Centered on all things scary, the expo will take a rather spooky turn with its Halloween-themed outdoor experience.

So dig into your pets’ wardrobes, see what fits and make up a perfectly fearsome costume and act for this pawsome contest!

The family friendly event will also open up the the Arboretum trails for visitors where you can enjoy a nice stroll followed by brews from the Saint Arnold Brewing Company.

There are commemorative pup crawls in store as well which you can get from the vendors at the expo.
