Description

We're inviting you and your furry pals to a BIG colourful Mexican party on Saturday 2nd November at Mr Fox Croydon, London from 1pm!

Day of the Dog is an immersive Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) style celebration, full of colour and joy to celebrate our dogs. We want to see as many dogs there as possible, the big, the small, the fluffy and tall!

Tickets cost £21, and one dog goes free per ticket. Extra dogs are allowed to join for £3 each.

You and your Amigos can enjoy:

Games and Prizes from Dog Furiendly
Mariachi music from Mariachi Amigo
Free Calavera (Skull) Face Painting for The Humans
Goody Bag from Tails.com
Piñatas filled with doggy treats
Mini Dog Show Searching for the Most Handsome Chico and Prettiest Chica
Plenty of Photo opportunities
Mexican Drink offers from Mr Fox

During the event, there will also be a space for you to bring photos of your departed doggies, traditionally known as an altar. We invite you to bring offerings to the altar in the form of your dog’s favourite food, treats, toys etc.

Dogs were believed to guide the ancestral spirits to their final resting place in the afterlife. Therefore, all items donated to the altar will go to the Guide Dogs, as they guide living spirits to where they need to go.

We can't WAIT to see all your beautiful perros!

About Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

Día de Los Muertos originated in Mexico celebrating the everlasting bonds of family with food, art and colourful customs, showing love and respect to deceased family members.

Deceased family members are kept alive within the community in memory and spirit and during Día de Los Muertos their spirits return to be with their families. Altars are created to bring the spirits home, filled with family photos, candles, marigolds, and their favourite things.

Please note: this event is not part of the Dia de los Muertos public holiday, which has significant religious meaning. Many traditions will not be happening at this event.
