We’re looking for the most creative costumes for pets. Pre-register online or register the day of the event between 1:30 and 2:00 outside of Victoria Secret. Runway show for judging will begin at 2:15. Judges will pick winners for a special prize package. All pets in attendance must be on leash at all times. Enter the center through the northwest entrance by Lenscrafters. Register here to ensure enough treats.
