The streets of downtown “Bow-mont” echoed with playful barks as residents and their canine companions showed off their costumes during Dogtoberfest, Saturday.

The annual event is organized by Beaumont Mainstreet.

The event kicked off with a ‘Strutt your Mutt’ parade where owners showed off their dogs by walking around the Julie Rogers Theatre.

The free event also included a Neiman Barkus shopping lane where vendors set up booths.

A food court featured a variety of dog treats, a pet spa, fortune telling with Madam Poodle Paw, a photo booth, a moonwalk and kiss a puppy kissing booth.

The event was the perfect pick-me-up for anyone having a “ruff” day.
