Inaugural Oktoberfest Pet Parade


Join your friends and neighbors for a great day of fun, exercise and fellowship in Historic Downtown Edmonds. All proceeds of the event go to Rotary programs, including funding of a new Inclusive Playground at Civic Field.

Enjoy a walk and "pet parade" through downtown Edmonds and ending back in the Field for fun, food, vendors and contests.

There will be water and trash receptacles along the route as well as Rotary & community volunteers. Emergency veterinary care and first aid will be provided on site.
