Kicking off the O.C.toberfest celebrations is the Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade! The parade will begin at 1 pm on October 19th, starting on the boardwalk near North Division Street.

During the parade, there will be lots of prizes and fun surprises for you and your pet! Participation in the event is FREE and the Worcester Humane Society will be accepting donations of pet supplies or monetary donations during the parade, plus there might even be a few furry friends with them that are up for adoption!
After the Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade is over participants and spectators can pull up their beach chairs and watch the Drive and Disguise Parade! This parade features cars decorated for Halloween, parading down the Boardwalk! The Drive and Disguise Parade will leave 26th Street and Baltimore Ave. at 3 pm and cruise the boardwalk heading south towards North Division Street where participating cars will line up for Trunk or Treating beginning around 3:30 pm!
