Trick-or-Treat Turlock Downtown on Halloween

Written by
Would your kids want to get started trick-or-treating earlier in the day? Do you want a safe place to go? This is not a trick, but a treat! You can take an early stroll through the spooky corridors of Main Street for trick-or-treating on Tuesday afternoon, Halloween.
Everyone is invited to watch the mutts strut their stuff! A doggy PAWstume contest, PAWstume Parade, musical mats, and PUPkin prizes are all part of the 5th Annual Barktoberfest, hosted by Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital.

Barktoberfest will take place on Sunday, Oct. 29, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., at the R.A.M. Farms Pumpkin Patch, located 716 N. Daubenberger Road.

The activity drawing the most dogs and people at this fun event is the PAWstume contest. So make sure to dress your pup in their best costume, and people should feel free to dress up as well, to compete in the PAWstume contest for PUPkin prizes.

The contest will have several categories being judged that include most creative, scariest, best pup and owner combo, best trick for a treat, best group, and best kid and pup only costume.

The fun doesn’t end there, the pups get to participate in a PAWstume Parade and musical mats.

There will be over $2,000 in prizes given away that include gift baskets, Keurigs, and TVs.

Barktoberfest draws hundreds of people who come see all the cute dogs dressed up, whether they have a dog, bring a dog, or bring a dog dressed up.

Because the event is held at the pumpkin patch in Turlock, there’s plenty to do and fun for the entire family. Everyone is invited to this community event.

Don't miss out on this HOWL-N good time.

Polarizing and often outspoken, conservative writer and pro-Trump advocate Ann Coulter will be the special guest speaker for this year’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner put on by the Republican Party of Stanislaus County. Notable for the recent controversy that initially saw her speaking event cancelled at University of California, Berkeley, the home of the free speech movement, Coulter is set to speak at the Lincoln Day Dinner only a day after the initial UC Berkeley event. 
The annual Turlock Christmas Parade attracts thousands of residents every year and traverses the Downtown core. Vehicular traffic should be advised of the multiple road closures set up for this event. Every year, the parade begins on Canal Drive by Johnson Road, heads west on Main Street through Downtown Turlock, and then north on Broadway Avenue, eventually concluding at the the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds.
