  1. Pensacola, Florida: October 6, 2012 ( old downtown Pensacola area at south end of Palafox St)
    BARKTOBERFEST : Dogs and owners of all types roam the whole Sevielle Square area (about 5 square blocks) in costumes or not. Plenty of eating places. Thousands of people with their dogs. Dog exhibits of training, equipment, etc, etc. Costume judging, funniest dog judging, etc along those lines. Open 9am to 4pm. Lots of fun.
