Mutt Masquerade

Hampton Roads’ furriest 5K, 1 mile walk, and costume contest is back! The Virginia Beach SPCA Mutt Masquerade is Coastal Virginia’s largest Halloween race that you can run with your dogs – all while supporting a great cause. There will be dogs in costumes, people in costumes, an oceanside course, adoptable animals, prizes, food trucks, and helping animals in need…what more could you want? Plus, this year the event features a region wide adoption event where shelters and rescues from across Hampton Roads will have adoptable animals onsite waiting to meet their forever families!
