The cutest Con will be here in a flash! Are you and your “pawsplay” partner ready?
Helen Woodward Animal Center’s orphan pets seek superhero adopters at the 6th annual Pawmicon Convention, which is always FREE and FAMILY-FRIENDLY!
Bring the whole family and cosplay for a cause! Included at PAWmicon this year:
- Carnival games, including “bobbing for squeak toys” for dogs,
- Face-painting for people,
- Superhero-themed crafts for kids,
- Opportunity drawings for Comic-themed prizes,
- Dog-friendly goodies and incredible gifts,
- Fun snack options,
- Pawsplay costumes and photo booths for Instagram-worthy moments,
- Limited free parking at Hazard Center,
- The ever epic PAWSplay Contest for superheroes and their heroic dogs!
Pawsplay Contest participants can dress up as a person-pup duo, or simply enter their pawsome pup. The Contest is $10 to enter, and all entrants will receive a goodie bag for participating. Don’t have a costume? PAWmicon will have you covered (literally) as dog costumes and human costumes are available for borrowing at the photo booth.
Surfing and Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) with your dog are terrific ways to enjoy San Diego summers! Helen Woodward Animal Center’s lessons will have you and your dog in the water making lasting memories. PLUS, 100 percent of ticket sales goes directly to the pets and programs at Helen Woodward Animal Center!
