Is your pooch all dressed up with nowhere to go this Halloween? Good news, now your furry friend can join more than 600 dogs dressed up as bumblebees, ballerinas and pirates at the Haute Dog Howl'Oween Parade for Charity.

The Long Beach, Calif. bash is the self-proclaimed largest Halloween pet event in the world, and will feature vendor booths, bobbing for Howl'oweenies, a dog treat stacking contest, a Bulldog Kissing Booth, costume contests, and a pet adoption fair.

Of course we wouldn't tell you about the parade without providing a video of some precious pups. Here's a clip of a previous year's cuteness:

The $15 to $25 parade entry fees for costumed canines go straight to the Community Action Team, of which Haute Dogs is a part. Last year, Haute Dogs raised about $13,000 for the nonprofit, which does year-round community-building activities that benefit animals, children and the environment.
