Nothing gets Tampa Bay’s tails wagging more than a market for pets and supplies. The Dog Moms of Tampa Bay will host its second annual Howliday Market in the Midtown Tampa development on Saturday, Dec. 2.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. that day, more than 100 vendors will offer ways to pamper pooches and provide some unique holiday ideas, including pet costumes, accessories, home decor, photography and special treats.
Vendors and groups in attendance include Hounds for Hope, Bandit Barkery, PeachyKeen Collars and Wags & Wine.
Studies show more than half of dog owners and nearly 40 percent of cat owners buy their pets gifts for Christmas or Hanukkah, according to the American Pet Products Association, an industry trade group.
In addition to the shopping, there will be holiday music and lawn games, and a chance to get a photo with your pet and Santa.
Money raised from the event will go local rescues and animal charities. The Dog Moms of Tampa Bay has raised more than $20,000 in the last few years for their favorite dog causes, the group said.
You’ll find the market in the heart of Midtown Tampa at 3659 Midtown Drive. It’s free to attend, and dogs are welcome to join their families for this day of shopping.
