Oct. 8, 2013 – The Hoosier Lottery is looking to break a world record, and they’re going to need lots of help.
Two years ago, in St. Louis, Mo., 1,326 costumed dogs gathered for the Purina Pet Care “Beggin’ Pet Parade”, setting the record for the furriest masquerade of all time.
This year, the Hoosier Lottery wants to break that record, so they’re sponsoring the Arfpocalypse, Sunday, Oct. 27.
Arfpocalypse will be held at the Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, Ind., about a half-hour northeast of Indianapolis.
There will be no entry fee for anyone 17 years old or younger. Those 18 years old and up will simply need to make a Hoosier Lottery purchase, and the Lottery will be selling games for as little as $1 at the event.
Registering is simple too. Just head to Arfpocalypse.com and click where it says “Pre-Register Now” to add your name to the guest list for free – with or without “man’s best friend”.
To break the world record for “most dogs in costumed attire at a single location,” all the dogs present must be healthy – so if you’re bringing your dog to Afrpocalypse, you must bring a copy of their vaccination records along too.
Arfpocalypse is a part of the Hoosier Lottery’s continued efforts to raise awareness for animal adoption programs in Indiana. So, if you aren’t bringing a four-legged friend but you’d like to leave with one, there will be several animal shelters present at the event with dogs ready for a good home.
You don’t need to pre-register for entry, but it sure would help in getting the right head count come Oct. 27. The world-record attempt will be officially made at 1:30 p.m., so be sure to arrive and register before then – you don’t want to be the missing number 1,327!
