On Saturday, Oct. 26, the Waimea Town Market at Parker School will host its Fifth Annual Halloween Hounds Costume Parade. This hilarious event features pooches of all sizes and shapes dressed up in seasonal finery; this is definitely one of those zany, not-to-be-missed Waimea happenings. Prize ribbons will be awarded in multiple categories including funniest, cutest, scariest, and judges’ choice. In addition, all canine contestants will receive a gift of Kalakoa Kookies dog treats for their good natured participation. Registration is at 9:30 a.m. with the parade at 10 a.m. Market vendors will join in the seasonal fun as they compete for ribbons for booth decorations. For more information on these events call Paul Johnston, 938-4540.
