It’s Dog-Gone Fun! Bring your four-legged pal and make a splash! There are plenty of activities for dog lovers of all ages.
Join the City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department for a Drool and Ghoul Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest and Pool Party. This annual event is open to well-behaved dogs each year at the H. Spurgeon Cherry (Westside) Pool. The pool and splash pad will be open to dogs, and there will be a costume contest, free dog baths, photos with your pet(s) and great local pet-business vendors! To enter your dog in the contest, please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the event. All proceeds benefit local animal charities.
