Virtual Boo-Wow Walk: Online Costume Parade of Pups

Around this time each year, Jessamine County Public Library and Jessamine County Animal Care and Control host the annual Boo-Wow Walk. For the last decade, pet-owners, pet-lovers and pups alike have gathered at the fairgrounds to celebrate Halloween. People bring their dogs decked out in creative costumes, vote on the best-dressed pup and explore treat stations and other offerings from local vendors. This year, due to the need to prevent large crowds from gathering, the 11th annual Boo-Wow Walk will be held virtually on the JCPL Facebook page. more: Virtual Boo-Wow Walk: Online Costume Parade of Pups
