If dogs wearing costumes makes you smile (whether it’s your pooch or someone else’s), you may enjoy the 2016 Dog-O-Ween held at Bell Street Park in the vicinity of 2nd Ave. on Bell Street in downtown Seattle. The event takes place on Saturday October 22nd from 11 am to 4 pm, with a dog costume contest as well as a performance by the popular children’s performer, Caspar Babypants.
Presented by Seattle’s COLA (Citizens for Off-Leash Areas), this will be the 2nd year for this event. Last year’s event was sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation and 6 community partners, but was cancelled due to extremely harsh weather conditions.
In a former life, Caspar Babypants (real name Chris Ballew) was a member of the musical group “The Presidents of the United States of America”. He now performs well-received, family-centric music, and has recorded 11 children’s albums, including two based on The Beatles’ music. His 12th album is due out in November 2016.
Bring your dog or enjoy someone else’s…in full Halloween attire at Dog-O-Ween.
