This weekend, there are going to be a lot of different Halloween events to choose from. But there will only be one that allows you to dress up, bring your pets (dressed up or not), trick or treat, check out local vendors, AND HELP OUT OUR FURRY FRIENDS!

The Yakima Humane Society had a tail-wagging blast with their Summer Bash event (recap for that event here), and they are doing it again for Halloween!

Pets in costumes

Food, vendors, music, tattoos, trick or treating, costumes, and lots of pets finding new homes! That is just a taste of what's in store this at Woof or Treat, Saturday (October 28th) from 2 to 6 p.m. at Sherman Park, located right outside the Yakima Humane Society's shelter at 2405 W. Birchfield Rd. on the Yakima Greenway by the Arboretum.

This event is free to the public, with vendors offering "Tricks or Treats" to guests. Donations to the Yakima Humane Society are always welcome, and yes, pets will be up for adoption, and many will be dressed up in their spookiest costumes!
