4th Annual Unleash the Pride: Pup Pride Parade + Meet-up 2017!
This past Saturday June 17th 2017 we hosted our 4th annual Unleash the Pride Pup Pride Parade + Meet–up with our co-host Helmut the Pug! This was our 2nd year as an official Pride Affiliate event, which brought out some friendly new faces to our Unleashed community as well as many familiar faces! Every year we strive to make our Pup Pride Parade the biggest and best to date – and this year sure lived-up to that (and beyond) thanks to everyone involved!
To kick-off the event, we had a number of amazing sponsors on board to help contribute and show their PRIDE with us! Our friends, Babes & Barks, provided custom Unleash the Pride rainbow bandanas for pawty guests to wear to show their Pride! Walnut & Company, premium all natural dog treats, was also in attendance to hand out treat bags to guests as they arrived (TREATS!) and we supplied each attendee with an Unleash the Pride loot bag filled with doggy samples and goodies too! Pet photographer Pete Thorne Photo was our event photographer, taking photos of guests as they arrived on our ‘Green Carpet’ and at our PRIDE themed Pup Photo Booth set-up inside for pups to pose in front of!
Once our pawty was all wrapped-up, we took to the streets to parade our PRIDE south down Ossington Ave. and then east along Queen St. towards Trinity Bellwoods Dog Bowl, where we ended with Helmut the Pug’s PUG GRUMBLE!
We’re so grateful for our amazing community of dog lovers and have each and every one of you to thank for another wonderful event! It brings us so much joy to see everyone out spreading the love together!
Until next year – HAPPY PRIDE!
