Holiday Traditions with Your Pets: Green Lake Pathway of Lights!

Holidays are a special time of the year for making memories with loved ones. For us pet people, holiday traditions often include our furry loved ones. Maybe your dog has his own stocking or a special winter sweater, or gets to “unwrap” a present on Christmas morning. There are many fun ways to involve our pets in holiday traditions.

One of my favorite holiday traditions in Seattle is the Greenlake Pathway of Lights! This is a fun and family friendly event that your pup absolutely won’t want to miss.

Of course, Greenlake is the dog capital of Seattle. But every year in December, this doggy haven gets a special touch of holiday cheer, as hundreds of volunteers line the 3-mile path with luminarias. Besides the lovely lights, there are carolers (scheduled and impromptu) and general merriment.

If you keep your eyes peeled, you may even see the sled team of Bernese Mountain Dogs dressed as reindeer. Highlight of the event, if you ask me!

This year, the Green Lake Pathway of Lights will be held on Saturday, December 14 from 4:30pm-7:30pm. So, bundle up, grab a cup of holiday cheer and head down to Green Lake with your pup!
