Pet costume contest

The results are in!


In Ponte Vedra, even our pets like to get in on Halloween fun – and these snazzy costume-bearers were invited to show their stuff this month as part of our annual pet costume contest.

We received photos of a dozen of our readers’ furry friends donning their very best (though not very spooky) getups.

Competition was stiff this year, and our staff has spent plenty of time poring over your submissions, trying to decide which wagging tail and smiling face would take home the gold this year.

In the end, we loved each and every submission – but a winner must be named!

The Menker pets – Sammy, Segundo and Sofie – are the winners for this year’s contest with their timely Star Wars-themed triple-part Halloween costume.

The three pups have earned parents’ Jennifer and Tom Menker a trip out on the town.

The Menkers will have their choice of tickets to the Jacksonville Zoo Spooktacular (which runs through the end of the month), normal Jacksonville Zoo tickets or tickets to the Alhambra Dinner Theatre.

Please stop by our office, or give us a call and let us know your preference.

Thanks so much for all of your submissions! We hope you and your pets have a fun and safe Halloween this year.
