Walk’n Wag fundraiser at Lake Sammamish is a little different this year, but you can still show off your pup and participate in the 3K walk.

A scenic course is set up from Aug. 27 to Sept. 20 for dog owners to come at their leisure and walk with their pet, starting at the northeast side of Tibbett Beach parking lot. All dogs must be on a leash.

Registration is free, but a donation of $25 to Friends of Lake Sammamish Park (FLSSP), hosts of the event, will get participants a dog toy and bag of pet goodies. Those can be picked up from Lake Sammamish State Park Office 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.

The pet show is also continuing virtual— photos for best dressed, smallest dog, best eyes, dog/owner look alike, best voice and best trick can be submitted following registration. The best entries will be posted to Facebook for voting and winners will be selected Sept. 22. Prizes are awarded in each category.

All who register and send photos of their walk or pet show entry will also be entered for a raffle. Show off your dog walk by emailing photos to director@flssp.org, which could be featured on FLSSP’s website and Facebook page.

Registration online here.
