Springfield, Missouri, Pets and Pumpkins Fun

Pets and Pumpkins makes a return to historic Commercial Street, Springfield, Missouri, for the 3rd year in a row on Saturday October 23 from 1pm to 5pm – rain or shine. Each year thousands of people and pets fill the street for an afternoon of Halloween fun.

The street between Robberson and Campbell will be closed to safely accommodate this popular event.

In addition to the area’s largest costume parade and contest for kids, adults and pets, activities include food, music, marshmallow roasting, trick or treating at the shops & vendors, inflatables, games, hay maze, cake walk and much much more.

Pets and Pumpkins was created to help animal rescue efforts. Money raised from the day of the event is donated to local shelters that are dedicated to saving homeless dogs and working to educate the public about the problems of pet over population. This year armbands and tags will be sold at the admission gates.  The cost is $2 per child and $2 per pet (Adults are free).
