The "Feast-ivities" Await!
  • Join us for the 34th Annual Dog Costume Parade through the Village of Rhinebeck! Bring your dog dressed in costume or as is to join the fun! Parade launches at 12:45pm and plenty of folks are also coming just to watch along the parade route. Cost is $10 per dog to participate. Registration takes place from 11am-12:30pm. You can really help us out by pre-registering between now and the event - in the shop (cash or check only) or right on the website here. The first 50 people to pre-register at Pause will receive a $4 Montgomery Row Card that can be redeemed in our store. Please consider bringing used towels, blankets or sheets for our collection. All items will be donated to local shelters.
  • Your registration includes participation in the "trick-and-treat" portion of the event too! More than 25 local merchants have agreed to pass out our treats. Visit the businesses, show off your dog's tricks and get some yummy treats. We'll have activities too! Bring your dog-themed pumpkin to enter the jack-o-lantern contest, watch your dog bob for apples, get your photo taken in our photo (boo!)th and more! This year we'll have food on hand and music too.
  • Numerous rescue organizations will be on site with adoptable dogs (and maybe even cats!) and a host of other local organizations and businesses will be here answering questions, passing out information and joining in on the fun. You'll find everything from pet first aid to therapy dogs to training tips and to pet photography. Find out all about the great resources available to you...right here in the Hudson Valley!
  • The event also includes a raffle - with all proceeds going to the cause. We've got LOADS of awesome raffle items including upscale dog beds, dog-themed gift baskets, gift cards to local restaurants ans shops, and much, much more! 
  • Event parking is available throughout the Village and in the Municipal Lot.
