The Northeast Dog Parade is one of the neighborhood’s most popular events. Every year is seems like more and more doggos turn-out, bringing plenty of humans along with them. Dogs must be getting better at using Facebook! The 2017 Dog Parade was no different. We estimate there were around 200 dogs that stopped by the event, with even more humans in tow. Northeast was crawling, drooling, sniffing, and rolling over with dogs!
To start, parade goers checked out booths from Ollu Dog Salon, Montage Apartments, Sidewalk Dogs, and Rolling Rover Bistro to get dog treats, coupons, and free swag. NEBA had its own table with tons of coasters, pins, t-shirts, tote bags, and more from local businesses to hand out. Thankfully, only one dog decided that the NEBA table was a good place to pee.
After lots of butt-sniffing, tail-waging, and new-friend-making, the parade set off. Elliot, our neighborhood beat cop, and Mila from Kazoo Branding led the pack up and down a stretch of NE Hennepin, upsetting traffic and delighting innocent passerby. One spectator was overheard saying, “Now this is Northeast!”. Back at the park, our doggie friends dazzled, jumped, and played dead in the Best Costume and Best Trick contests.
Thank you to all the NEBA members and sponsors who help make events like this happen! Special thanks to: Bone Adventure, little pepper promotions, Froeber Dentistry, and Kazoo Branding for their instrumental help, we couldn’t have done it without you.
Lots of pictures from the event can be found on Facebook here.
