Howl at the Moon Glow Fest set for October 7

Special to the HHES

KILLEEN — Emancipet Killeen’s third annual Howl at the Moon Glow Fest will take place Saturday, Oct. 7 from 5-10 p.m. at Harker Heights Community Park Pavilion, 1501 E. FM 2410 Road. Admission is FREE with a suggested $5 donation for adults at the gate.

This family- and dog-friendly event will include live music, local vendors, food trucks, and more. After sundown, attendees and their pets can compete for Glow Glam awards and enter the Howl Contest, then stroll around the park grounds for the Glow Walk.

All proceeds from Howl at the Moon Fest benefit Emancipet Killeen, a non-profit organization that makes high-quality, low-cost veterinary care accessible for all pet owners.

Entertainment will be provided by Siva Ori Polynesia, The Party Mixer, and Westbound. Food trucks include Philippine Pit Stop and City Dawgs. Local vendors include Bath Fitter Austin, Color Street with Jessa, Everything Paw Related, King’s Point Cove, Kustom K9, Lollie’s Crafts N’ Things, Mais Souffle Bistro, Martial ZEN, Pink Warrior Angels, and School of Wags, among MANY others. (See full vendor list available here.)

“The funds raised at the Howl at the Moon Glow Fest help Emancipet continue to increase access to safe, affordable spay/neuter and veterinary services for the pets and the people who love them in the Greater Killeen/Fort Hood Area,” says Grazyna Musick, community director of Emancipet Killeen.

Emancipet Killeen provides low-cost veterinary care, and serves pets and people in Bell, Coryell, Lampasas, and northern Williamson counties. Since opening its doors in 2014, Emancipet Killeen performed more than 15,500 spay/neuter surgeries, and completed more than 27,500 healthy pet visits.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome (limit two dogs per participant). All dogs must wear a collar with an ID tag and be on a standard leash (no retractable leashes, please).

“We had a great turnout last year, and we expect this year’s Howl at the Moon Fest to be even bigger and better. We hope everyone will save the date for Oct. 7 and get ready to enjoy live music, visit vendor booths, grab a snack or dinner from local food trucks, and get their glow on with us at this family-friendly event,” Musick says.
