Best Seattle Doggie Halloween Parties & Parades

Seattle Dog Nutrition Event Expert Speaker

Dog Halloween costumes events Seattle Times

Seattle Times Doggie Halloween Gallery

I think dog Halloween parades, dog Halloween parties, and dog Halloween costumes are the bees knees. My dog Pipa, however, has tried to make me an opponent of doggie dress-up time. She has made it clear that under no circumstances will she be wearing the ridiculously super neato harem costume; apparently she won’t even be wearing a t-shirt. The only way I could enter a people/pooch costume contest is if I dressed like her. So basically, she insists on raining on my doggie Halloween parade…. but that doesn’t mean she has to rain on everyone else’s!!!

Here’s a list of the best dog Halloween parades and Dog-O-Ween parties taking place in Seattle this weekend. If anyone’s participating please send pics, I’d love to do a collage – maybe Pipa will take the hint.

My Top Pick

Dog Halloween Contest Run Scared 5K SeattleOctober 28
Run Scared 5K in Seward Park. Run, walk, do the zombie shuffle, whatever works for you, at this event benefiting The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Dogs on short leashes allowed and there will be a costume contest for pups afterwards.
9AM at Seward Park, click here for a course map.

Other Spooktacular Options

DogtoberFest at Fremont Oktoberfest This Sunday, September 23rd!!!

And ONE last thing for this weekend…

DOGTOBERFEST!!

(Putting it in all CAPS makes it kind of unintelligible, but you get how exciting this is right?!!)

Dogtoberfest Fremont OktoberfestThis Sunday Fremont’s Oktoberfest becomes all sorts of dog friendly with a bunch of pup-approved activities…. and apparently beer-swilling parents approve as well. Let’s go through the list of things that make this event neato:

1. ‘Hair of the Dog’ Day

This is the only day your dog is able to join you in the Fremont Oktoberfest Tasting Garden.

2. MOViN 92.5 Dog Lounge

If just having your dog stare at you while you drink isn’t enough, then you can get them in on the action too with the Dog Lounge’s doggie water tasting.

3. Strut your Mutt in the CityDog Magazine Cover Dog Model Contest

CityDog Magazine wants to see if your dog has what it takes to be the next Cover Dog in their annual Cover Dog Model Contest. Let “Fido” strut his stuff on the runway and be in the running to be a Cover Dog Model for CityDog Magazine. The contest starts at 3:00 pm.

4.Run with your dog in the Fremont Oktoberfest 5K or Street Scramble

Take a break from the Green Lake loop and run along the Fremont Ship Canal or scavenge through the streets of Fremont! Fremont Oktoberfest 5K starts at 10:00 am. Fremont Oktoberfest Street Scramble starts at 10:30 am.

Oktoberfest is open until 6PM so if you’re checking out FidoFest at UVillage earlier in the day, you can still make it here! For more information visit the Fremont Oktoberfest site.
