Spooky pooches and howling hounds to take part in Halloween dog parade

  • Annual Halloween dog parade returns to Manchester 
  • Dogs and owners dressed in scary costumes

As we approach Hallowe’en, Northern Quota is looking into some of our city’s events as well as paranormal myths and legends.

Halloween is not the same without a scary costume and dogs are getting in on the act too with spooky pooches being paraded through the city’s mean streets.

Dogs and their owners will take to Exchange Square on Sunday for an event where humans and dogs can dress up in their Halloween finest.

The winners of the contest, which is one of many events across the city celebrating Halloween, will leave with a terrifying trophy, 

The parade, which starts at 1pm, is expected to attract up to 50 pets and their owners.

Catherine Whatley, 22, said: “With so much negativity going on in the world at the moment, it’s nice to see something that brings people together. There are few things that bring as much joy to people’s lives as sausage dogs with bat wings.”
