About Pets and Pumpkins
Don't miss the Annual Pets and Pumpkins Festival 2019!
Join us this year Downtown Springfield MO on the square!
The 2019 Pets and Pumpkins Festival takes place on Saturday, October 19th from 12pm to 5pm in the heart of the Downtown Square in Springfield, MO.
There is something for the entire family to enjoy -- including the fur-kids!
Pets and Pumpkins also hosts one of the largest costume parades in Missouri. Hosted by TAME Pet Magazine, both pets and people are invited to enter the walking parade/contest. Parade line-up starts at 3:15 pm on Park Central East next to Civil Kitchen.
Pets and Pumpkins is a “Rain or Shine” event. The cost is $2.00 each for all attendees (kids, pets & adults). With paid admission, attendees can take part in ALL the activities at no additional cost, including the walking parade and costume contest!
Besides all the fun, one of the BEST things about Pets and Pumpkins is that almost 100% of the gate fee is donated to local non-profit children and animal organizations. The event helps support organizations dedicated to working with children in foster care and those working to save lives of homeless animals.
We believe that all kids and and pets deserve a loving family!
