What a summer this will be for West Seattle dogs and the people who love them. First, we had news of the PAWrade preceding next month’s West Seattle Grand Parade in the Junction. Now, the Morgan Junction Community Festival – less than two weeks away – is bringing back the Bark of Morgan! From festival communicator Susan Madrid:
The Morgan Community Association is pleased to announce the return of the Bark of Morgan Dog Show at the Morgan Junction Community Festival on June 16, 2018. Our thanks to Morgan Junction businesses Pet Elements and The Wash Dog for sponsoring the event.
The Bark kicks off at 1:45 pm with the Pooch Parade through the festival grounds followed by several audience applause-judged contests.
This is the 13th year of the popular festival, held in and around Morgan Junction Park in West Seattle. As in past years, the Festival and the Bark of Morgan will occur rain or shine!
Here are the Bark of Morgan details:
1:45 pm – Pooch Parade:
Leashed dogs and their humans assemble by 1:30 pm north of Morgan Junction Park in SW Eddy Street. Contestants will traverse through the festival grounds back to Eddy Street. Costumes are encouraged.
2:00 pm – Canine Contests:
The contests take place north of Eddy Street after the Parade. Contest categories are:
• Cutest Puppy
• Loudest Bark
• Smallest and Largest Dog
• Best Trick
• Best Costume
• Best Owner/Dog Lookalike
Three winners will be awarded for each contest. Contest winners are based on the audience applause-o-meter as certified by Festival Master of Ceremonies.
The Morgan festival, 10 am-4 pm Saturday, June 16th, will also include live music, Bubbleman, and more. WSB is a co-sponsor again this year and we’ll have more info in the days ahead!
