Barnaby Street Shoppes merchants invite the public to participate in a pet-themed Halloween celebration and fundraiser Wednesday. Pet owners are invited to enter their favorite pet in a Halloween costume contest and parade at 3 p.m. at the stores, located on the Bell Mar Plaza, 11340 W. Bell Road, Suite 128, Surprise.
Anyone not entered in the contest is eligible to vote for the best-costumed pet. The winning pet and owner will receive a prize from PetSmart.
All visitors to Barnaby Street on Halloween are welcome to enter a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Barnaby Street Shoppes to be used at one or more resident businesses.
Admission is free. Donations of pet food and spare change are being collected by R&R Craft Creations and Bottlecap Productions, a Barnaby Street merchant. The donations will be shared between the 4 Paws Rescue and Sun City Animal Shelter. Shauna’s Pet Spa will be on-site with clean, healthy dogs in need of good homes.
