Due to COVID 19 our pet show will look a little different this year. We invite you and your pet (dog, cat, rabbit, bird, rodent, reptile, or fish) to come dressed in your best Halloween costume for a trunk-r-treat! All people and pets will remain in your vehicle but will “parade” around the multi-use and trick-r-treat from local businesses in the parish. Vehicles will arrive through the west entrance, take a picture with their pet, and proceed. If you do not have a real pet, no worries, grab you best stuffed animal and join the fun! Costmums are not required but welcomed!
Where: Pointe Coupee Multi-Use Center (located next to the Scott Civic Center) in New Roads
When: Wednesday, October 28, 2020 @ 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Dress in costume, make posters, and parade from your cars!
Fan Favorite Awards will be given.
All awards will be announced in November CloverChat and given at November Club Meetings.
