    Hello fuzzies! Looking forward to seeing you there today.

    As it happens, I'm looking to head down to Seattle after this and am wondering if I could catch a ride with anyone headed back down tonight? I'm happy to provide coffee/junk food/good conversation/etc.

    REMINDER: This event has a few RULES.
    No words written or spoken (that means no conbadges, word shirts, etc this isn't the event for that!)
    No Live Animals (you know.. the pet kind of animals)
    No Motorized Vehicles

    I don't think anyone will be your mom and remind you to leave your conbadge/pet/etc in your car, just please be respectful in the first place. We are welcome back to the Bellingham Procession every year because the organizer LOVES us, lets have fun and follow the organizer's instructions during the event. Start when we are asked to start, etc. The organizer is NOT a furry and probably doesn't follow FurLife. I am just posting because I really really enjoy this event so very very much, and have volunteered to teach workshops and love to come every year. I just don't want any awkward situations in the future (like the Olympia Procession seems to have)!

      Looks like the organizer has a good formula, and rules are important. Great post, thanks for spending the time to share.

    HEY FELLOW FURS!! WE SHOULD PICK A MEETING PLACE so that we can find each other prior to the parade! We shouldn't have to search for the group... There was the suggestion by Silver R. Wolf of "Lottie or Central, right after N Commercial/Girard." ???????????? ~C>

      I don't know what other people were bringing, eg the caravan from last year, otherwise all I can suggest is the park at the back entrance to the library. I presume we can use the library washrooms to change, but where would we be able to leave bags? If people have a place to leave cars and we can meet up there that would be great.

      May 3, 2013

    • Michael J F.

      The library ended up working out well

  • Alphapak

    Definitely one of my major highlights for the weekend! I had fun. :D

    May 5, 2013

  • Tyler

    Looks like it was fun! Wish I could have come!

  • Mortuest

    Carma, Alphapack and I are wandering around the library now

    Hey furs! Bringing my Sony Cybershot camera to this event for video!I'll be in suit however. Anyone willing to take some video for me?

    May 4, 2013

  • Razzy L.

    Also, like Matrices said, can't stress this enough. You can't wear any apparel/t-shirts or anything or hold signs of any kind with logos or text written on them to this event. :/

    May 3, 2013

    • Ian S.

      if we dont have a fursuit then could we still walk or how is this working?

      May 4, 2013

    • Razzy L.

      you can hang out along the parade route if you don't have something to wear that's animal related

      May 4, 2013

  • Ian S.

    I live in bellingham, of course im going to be there lol

    May 3, 2013

    • Ian S.

    • Blade L.

      Sweet more whatcom furs I live up in ferndale

      May 4, 2013

  • Ian S.

    so we cant wear any of our badges at all? and what if we dont have a fur suit *like myself* i only have a tail

    May 4, 2013

    • SiberHamster

      Hello Ian. Check out the BPOTS website as well as their Facebook. They have photos and video links to give you an idea of what the parade is like. If your badge has NO WORDS OR ALPHANUMERIC CHARACTERS I wouldn't see anything wrong with it. You can probably also ask them on Facebook (Someone will probably respond). Also like the website says. THREE SIMPLE RULES: 1 - NO WORDS WRITTEN OR SPOKEN 2 - NO LIVE ANIMALS 3 - NO MOTORIZED VEHICLES ~C>

      May 4, 2013

    • Matrices

      No, you cannot wear your conbadges. This is NOT an event where conbadges with any name or words are appropriate. Feel free to introduce yourself to new friends before the parade, during the parade there is no talking! :3

    I'll come along if anyone can swing by and pick me up from Everett on their way up? (Preferably people i know) I'd love to walk the parade! bringing voltage.

    Can any canadians give me a ride to this? I live in White Rock, right next to the border.
    Text me:[masked]

    May 2, 2013

    • Rukario

      I'm looking for a ride too, also in White Rock. All the Vancouver furs I know who went last year are at BLFC. Also trying to get text numbers of anyone to see where we're meeting up. Me: [masked] (Can) or[masked] (US)

    Also, last year we went to Roundtable Pizza afterwards which is located a short drive away at Sunset Square. Not sure what the plans are this year but that's still a pretty affordable option for most folks. Unfortunately I have to take off right after the procession but I hope other people stick around and make a good meet out of it!

    May 2, 2013

  • Silver R. W.

    So the line-up actually begins at 3:30pm.

    Last year we had a trailer there, courtesy of Anthropaws, that the fursuiters could get geared up in however I don't believe we'll have them this time.

    My suggestion would be to have a few people try to get there early and park on one of the side streets. We can then dress up around those vehicles and take a short jaunt over to the starting point. I would recommend Lottie or Central, right after N Commercial/Girard.

    • Alphapak

      In Everett, unless there is a specific place you want to meet.

      April 29, 2013

    • Mortuest

      Cool. I can pick you up. I'm thinking around 12 so we can get there early enough. PM me directions. FYI, the back of my Camaro may be a bit cramped ...

  • Alphapak

    I loved this event from last year. I'd be happy to go, if I can get a ride to and/or from Everett.

    April 9, 2013

    • Dolph

      I might be able to offer a ride, espicially if your willing to pitch in a bit for gas. :)

      April 10, 2013

    • Alphapak

      That would be great! Paying for gas wouldn't be too much trouble.
