What: There are a lot of participants in this event, check this Facebook post to see a more complete list. Here are a few that caught our attention:
Equine Life Solutions - This Bothell company offers riding lessons and horses for special events.
They are bringing horses to the Summer Pet Festival! https://www.facebook.com/equinelifesolutions
Pit Bull Kissing Booth - We aren't kidding, and we are gonna try it for ourselves!
The adorable dogs are provided by Charlie's Guardian Angels
Reading with Rover - The Mill Creek branch of the UW Bookstore is sponsoring Reading With Rover in their special events space. What does this mean? What is "Reading With Rover"? It's a chance for youngsters to practice reading skills with a therapy dog. Now, why would you want to do this, beside that a dog is involved? Well, some kids are self conscious and insecure about their skills, and may feel more comfortable practicing in front of a dog instead of a person. It's a cool idea!
The Cat Ball will be there - stop by and get your photo with our new, not-yet-very-famous mascot, Flat Retro.
Search #FlatRetro on Instagram to see the current collection of silly photos of our cardboard cat.
