Northport Dog Parade – August 12, 2017

The Northport Dog Parade happens the second Saturday in August each year in downtown Northport.

It’s once upon a time to announce the theme of this year’s 21st Annual Northport Dog Parade! Hairy Tales!

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

Registration and parade line-up on 3rd street – beginning at 9:30 am.
Parade begins at 11:00 am

Awards to follow at approximately 11:45 am in Haserot Park
2017 theme: “Hairy Tails” (a take off on Fairy Tales!)

We’re looking for volunteers to help pace the parade on the day of the event.

The idea is to have the dogs and their owners move along the parade route at a measured pace for better viewing and picture taking. Let us know if you’re interested.

Date and time of parade is Aug 8, registration starting at 9:30am, parade starts at 11am

This year's Northport Dog Parade theme is in homage to the late Airport K-9 Team, rex specs not required. Some ideas include: firefighter dogs, police dogs, nurse and doctor dogs, ambulance driver dogs, avalanche dogs, coast guard dogs, and more!

Northport Dog Parade

The Northport Dog Parade needs a leader/organizer! This is one of our area's most fun and possibly cutest parades, and it is in jeopardy of not happening this year. This is an all-out call for someone to step up, and give our pups the parade they deserve. Is this YOU? All interested parties, please contact Northport-Omena Chamber of Commerce Vice President Scott Cain at: scott.a.cain@gmail.com ... See MoreSee Less

Tiffany not like you don't already have enough going on buuuuuut you're always the most enthusiastic all-family dog paraders! <3 also... that's you, isn't it? haha

I was chairman for several years for this event. If someone is interested in what is required of the chair person I’d be happy to have a conversation with you. I’m out of state but could accomplish a lot by phone.

Aunt Debbie Wilson Fishaw Venegas Aunt Denise Wilson-Dybas
