About the Event
EVENT UPDATE: For the safety of our supporters, volunteers, and staff, we have adjusted Barks and Boos to a drive through Trunk or Treat! Let your kids and dogs get some treats without leaving the car! We have modified virtual activities as well! #BarksandBoos
Looking for safe, family friendly Halloween fun? Then come join us at our First Annual Barks and Boos Halloween Event! Uplifting Paws is hosting an event for the whole family, including your four legged pals! Barks and Boos is a Halloween fundraiser that will allow children to Trick or Treat with their dogs! This event is modified to allow trick or treating from inside your vehicle, in Trunk or Treat style!
Modified activities include: - Virtual costume contest: everyone can participate in our costume contest with the hashtag #BarksandBoos! Tag us on social media with pictures of your costumes! Then, remember to share your post - the most "likes" wins! - Virtual guessing game: how many treats in the treat jar? How many pieces of candy fit in a dog bowl? Closest guess gets a prize!
Uplifting Paws is participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project and will have alternative candy and/or toys available for children with allergies.
This event is now a free-will donation with a suggested $5 donation per child or dog. This is a fundraiser for our service dog program.
With the safety of our supporters, staff and volunteers in mind, we are doing the following to help protect everyone:
- Vendors, staff and volunteers will only handle candy or giveaway items while gloved and masked - All booths will have hand sanitizer and new gloves readily available - Masks are required by all guests ages 5 and over, and recommended to all younger children able to wear them - Hand washing easily accessible - Families will remain in their vehicle and navigate to each Trunk or Treat station - All games and activities will be one use only, or sanitized between uses - Outdoor event
- All frequently touched surfaces will be routinely sanitized
