Go, Dog Go! Canine Festival & Dog Walk

The Northwest is famously canine friendly. Boutique owners offer complimentary dog treats, many bars welcome Fido, and dogs can even ride on Metro with their owners. Accordingly, Kirkland's Go, Dog Go! Canine Festival & Dog Walk offers sundry games and activities for your four-legged family member. These include agility demos, a flyball competition, and a qualifying round for the Skyhoundz Disc Dogathon (aka Frisbee catching). Along with music, food (for both dogs and masters), and pet paraphernalia, entertainment will include the Emerald City K9 Freestyle Dancers—yes, that means human/dog choreography. The two-mile dog walk begins at 10:30 a.m. (participation fee $20); expect to see many dogs (and owners) in costume. Bring your pooch and, please, some little plastic bags. Juanita Beach Park, ALLISON THOMASSEAU

Sat., July 28, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2012
