ENID — Atwoods hosting pet costume contest

Halloween is about a week away, so it’s time to start thinking about your pet’s costume.

The contest will include several weight categories, and there will be four wining places in each of the categories. A grand champion and manager’s choice also will be named.

All entries will receive free pet treats and the chance to win one of many door prizes.
