Halloween pet parade a huge success
Volunteer Park was packed last month with crowds of people and their costumed pets attending our first annual Halloween Pet Parade. This October extravaganza featured over 20 vendor booths, food trucks (for both people and pets!), and over 100 entries into our pet costume competition. Participants showed off their creativity, skills, and humor while vying for trophies, gift baskets, and raffle prizes — with plenty of photo opportunities for everyone. Nonprofits like Old Dog Haven and Seattle Humane shared their calling to rescue pets. Check out The Seattle Times photo slide show and the Q13 FOX video on Facebook. Read the full details on our website. View hundreds of photos on our Flickr site or search #VPTPetParade on Instagram. Many thanks to Event Sponsors Aegis Living on Madison and Jet City Animal Clinic. And special thanks to our Community Partners Kaiser Permanente and 4Culture and to the many businesses whose in-kind donations filled our gift basket. You can see all the photos on our Flickr site.
