The 4th of July may be packed with fireworks, flags and fun, but what about Fido? The inaugural Bellevue 4k run and walk for dog lovers and their furry friends begins the morning of the 4th of July in Ashwood Park and benefits the King County Humane Society. Participants can tucker out their panting pals while enjoying all the bustling city has to offer at their fingers (or paws!) when they're done. Bellevue offers plenty of pet-friendly post-run activities such as local dog parks, outdoor seating at restaurants for lunch, and nearby hiking trails for those looking to go the extra mile. Free parking is available at the Bellevue Library parking structure.
