Celtic Swell to hold “Pets & Their People” contest on March 16, benefiting Seattle Humane Society

As part of Celtic Swell Irish Pub’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, they are holding a “family-friendly” pet costume contest on Saturday, March 16 at their Alki location. Donations made during the event will go to the Seattle Humane Society and if the weather cooperates, an informal "Pets and Their People" parade will take place.

Here are all the details from Annie Allison with Celtic Swell:

Alki’s Celtic Swell Irish Pub Hosts First Annual St. Patrick’s Day “Pets & Their People” Pet Costume Contest to Benefit the Seattle Humane Society

Help West Seattle’s Authentic Irish Pub & Restaurant Support the Seattle Humane Society, Celebrate St. Pat’s Day with Family-Friendly Pet Costume Contest, Free Photo Booth, Food, Drinks and Prizes!!!

Sat. March 16th at The Celtic Swell, 2PM- 4PM

Labs dressed-up like leprechauns! Shar peis with sheleighleighs! Bulldogs boasting bagpipes! There’s no telling what you’ll see when Alki’s Celtic Swell Irish Pub hosts its first annual St. Patrick’s Day “Pets & Their People” Costume Contest featuring a free photo booth and prizes to benefit the Seattle Humane Society. The family-and-pet-friendly event is a must-do for everyone seeking festive and memorable St. Paddy’s Day fun.

Guests are invited to dress up their pets (and themselves) in St. Pat’s day garb, mug it up Irish-style in the Celtic Swell’s free photo booth and win incredible prizes donated by some of the area’s favorite local businesses. Participation is free with all donations benefiting the Seattle Humane Society.

With two Siberian Huskies of his own, Celtic Swell owner Gareth Hughes says the costume contest and the cause felt like a natural fit for the Swell. “This year marks our 9th annual Paddy’s celebration so we wanted to try something a little different! I can’t think of a better way to get the entire family in on the fun of St. Paddy’s day and give back to invaluable community organizations like the Seattle Humane Society who work tirelessly to promote positive change. Judging from the tremendous positive response we’ve received already, I’m confident this will become a cherished family tradition for years to come.”

The fundraiser is part of a three day event with live music and Irish brunches:
