Howl-o-ween Pet Parade


Salem is going to the dogs (and cats and lizards and bunnies), and we couldn’t be happier about it! 

Salem Main Streets is pleased to announce the return of the annual Howl-o-ween Pet Parade! The pet parade will return to Derby Wharf on Saturday, Oct. 14th at 11 am, with the usual fun, costumes, and contest with prizes.

We ask all parade participants to register online in advance if possible. We request a small donation of $5 for Salem residents and $10 for non-residents. All proceeds go directly to Salem Main Streets in support of special community programs (like this one!) all year round.

Online advance registration is now closed. Onsite registration at the parade starts at 11 am.

The 2023 Howl-o-ween Pet Parade is supported by lead sponsors Wolf Next Door Coffee, King Lewis Engraving & Gifts, Jenni Stuart Fine Jewelry, Jay’s Smoke Shop, and Blackcraft, as well as Annie’s Asian Mart, Couch Dog Brewing, Coven, Emporium 32, Enchanted, Koto, Miel Dental Aesthetics, Salem Bespoke Boutique, Wicked Good Books, Witch City Wicks, Bark Busters Boston North, Biss, Gulu Gulu Café/Flying Saucer Pizza Company, Re-find, and Whimsy’s Sweet Life.
