Paws at the River – Yorktown Market Days
Saturday, October 31, 2020
8 am – 3 pm
Head to Yorktown for a PAWSITIVELY Fabulous Halloween Market!
Yorktown Market Days’ annual Paws at the River Market is designed to bring awareness to animal rescue organizations and help place adoptable pets in their “furever” homes.
On this special day, the market fun will extend down to the green in front of the Riverwalk Landing businesses, where you’ll find several pet vendors and animal rescue organizations. Be sure to get there early for a free picture with your canine companion; each photo will be uploaded to Facebook. Photos will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
And, of course, be sure to join us for our annual Halloween Pet Parade which kicks off at 1 p.m. behind the Freight Shed and does a loop around the market! Entertainment and commentary will be provided by local favorite, Phil Poteat.
For those of you with dogs who are skittish around loud noises, please make note that the Fifes and Drums of York Town will march through the area at 10 a.m.
NEW this year – participating Historic Yorktown businesses will also be handing out goodies from 10 to 3. A trick-or-treat map will be posted on both the Visit Yorktown and Yorktown Market Days Facebook pages along with several signs displayed throughout town that day. (And we posted map below just scroll down) A limited number of bags will be available at each location. Your child may also want to bring his or her own to the market.
Free parking for special events is available in several lots throughout Historic Yorktown, including the two-tier parking terrace on Water Street. The free Yorktown Trolley runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
