First-of-its-kind pet parade to arrive by ferry and march to Safeco Field for Bark at the Park
Washington State Ferries will transport furry fans and hundreds of their human friends to Seattle for Bark at the Park on Tuesday, May 24 as the Seattle Mariners take on the Oakland A’s. Passengers will also have a chance to adopt a pet from the MaxMobile, Seattle Humane’s mobile adoption bus, which will be parked on the ferry car deck. Once at Colman Dock, canine and human baseball fans will join the Mariner Moose and take to the streets for a first-of-its-kind parade to Safeco Field.
Ticket holders and their dogs coming from Bainbridge are invited aboard the 3:50 p.m.sailing from Bainbridge to Seattle as they make their way to the game. The Mariner Moose and Mariners’ Navigators Street Team will welcome them to Colman dock.
“We are thrilled to team up with Washington State Ferries for the second ‘Ferry Tails’ adoption event,” said Megan Dishneau of Seattle Humane. “Mariners fans have two opportunities – on the ferry and outside Safeco Field at the corner of Occidental Avenue and Edgar Martinez Drive – to board the bright yellow MaxMobile adoption bus and meet adoptable pets. Those who find a match can place a hold, enjoy the baseball game, and finalize the adoption the following day at Seattle Humane in Bellevue.”
All customers are encouraged to buy tickets in advance to beat the rush on the way home from Safeco Field.
Washington State Ferries is the largest ferry system in the United States. Twenty-three ferries cross Puget Sound and its inland waterways, carrying more than 23 million passengers to 20 different ports of call. From Tacoma, Washington, to Sidney, British Columbia, Canada, WSF travels across the Sound, as the marine highway for commuters and commercial and recreational users.
