This year’s Fremont Fair officially kicked off another Seattle summer with an unforgettable celebration of the city’s distinctive “delibertas quirkas,” or freedom to be peculiar. Throngs of visitors enjoyed hundreds of artists, craft vendors, and food booths—not to mention the fair’s iconic parade of creative, freewheeling cyclists.

But that wasn’t the only group strutting its stuff through the fairgrounds.

Another highlight was Sunday’s Just Right by Purina Dog Parade, a four-legged festivity where dogs and their human counterparts marched side–by-side, led by Seattle’s own Blue Thunder drum line.

The parade was chock-full of hundreds of catchy costumes and countless examples of often funny—and furry—creativity.

This one-of-a-kind event celebrated dogs of all shapes, sizes and personalities, highlighting the things that make every dog and owner unique. Just Right by Purina is continuing the celebration of uniqueness throughout the year with its personalized blends of dog food.
