The MCA's sculpture garden will play host to a bevy of costumed dogs next weekend for the Howloween Dog Day Parade. In addition to dressed up dogs, find bobbing for dog treats and prizes for best dressed. Check this week's Time Out Chicago for pet costume ideas. Howloween is in conjunction with MCA family days. This is the kind of family dog fun that helped Chicago receive rank as dog-friendliest major city in the US. (The MCA's Howloween is not to be confused with this Howloween 2005 event in British Columbia.)
