Pets of all shapes and sizes are encouraged to participate in the upcoming Walk ‘n Wag in the Park, a 3K walk and run at the Birch Bay State Park BP Heron Center. The event takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, August 25 at the park and costs $10 per family to participate.
Proceeds will be used to promote the renewal of Blaine-Birch Bay Parks and Recreation District 2 six-year levy, which will be on the general election ballot in November. Money collected from the levy is used for the parks district general fund, which covers costs related to staffing, operations, maintenance and other improvements.
Walk ‘n Wag in the Park will offer guests a hot dog dinner, games and activities. Pets are encouraged to wear costumes and participate in a talent show – organizers will be sure to bring cameras to capture the fun.
The event takes place on the 101st anniversary of the National Park Service, so parking is free.
