Update (Sept. 11): The Ballard Dog Show hasn’t had the best luck this summer: tonight’s show has been canceled “due to the high possibility of thunderstorms in the area”.
“The weather was certainly not on our side this year but we look forward to producing this event next summer,” Anndrea Dohring from Ballard Alliance tells My Ballard.
Update (Sept. 6): Now that the smoke has cleared, the Dogs of Ballard Dog Show has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 11 from 6 to 8pm.
“Cheer and woof our contestants on – there will be giveaways for all, treats, a selfie photo station, and more!” the organizers tell us.
Update (August 21): The dog show has been postponed due to poor air quality. From Ballard Alliance:
Original: Only a few days left to perfect your pup’s tricks and costumes: next week is the Dogs of Ballard Dog Show in Ballard Commons Park.
On the evening of Tuesday, August 21, the four-legged residents of Ballard will be competing in three different categories: Best in Show, Best Costume, and Best Trick. There will be three awards given for each judged category. The free event is from 6 to 8pm., and will also include giveaways and The Seattle Barkery food truck will have both human- and dog-friendly bites.
