Two blocks of Historic Commercial Street, between Robberson and Campbell, are sectioned off for the event, which includes, trick or treating (for both human and fur-kids), marshmallow roasting, inflatables, food, music and more. Pets and Pumpkins is also host to one of the largest costume parades in SW Missouri. Sponsored by TAME Pet Magazine, both pets and people are invited to enter the walking parade/contest. Winners receive trophies and prizes for the following categories: Best Pet/Owner Combo, Most Original, Funniest, Cutest, Scariest, and Judge’s Overall Favorite.

Pets and Pumpkins is a “Rain or Shine” event and the cost is $2.00 for kids (ages 2-16) and $2.00 for pets (fur-kids). With paid admission, attendees are given an orange wrist or collar band and can take part in ALL the activities at no cost. This includes the walking parade and costume contest! NOTE: Adults and children under two are admitted free but WILL need to purchase a wristband ($2.00) to take part in the parade/costume contest. Besides all the fun, one of the BEST things about Pets and Pumpkins is 100% of money raised from the sale of wrist/collar bands is donated to local non-profit organizations.
