st. pawktrick's day pawty seattle washington 2017St. Patrick’s Day is going to the dogs - and we mean that in the best way possible. Today, Seapine Brewing will partner with the Seattle Humane Society for an event like no other.

Prepare for the St. Pawtrick’s Day Pawty!

From 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., the Seapine Brewery will provide pet-owners with a tail-wagging good time. The St. Pawtrick’s Day Pawty allows men and women to celebrate with their four-legged friends - providing free treats and goodie bags, exclusive pet supply coupons, raffle prizes, and more! Dress your pup in his clover-covered best for a chance to win the costume contest; and strike a pose at the photo booth.

This event lets dog-lovers enjoy an evening of furry fun - and to also rally together for an important cause. Proceeds from the St. Pawtrick’s Day Pawty will benefit the Seattle Humane Society, helping animals in need across the city.

There’s no better way to spend the holiday! Take care, though: the downtown streets will prove crowded. This is why we recommend the 2017 Ford Explorer, which boasts Enhanced Active Park Assistance to navigate even the tightest spaces. Ultrasonic sensors scan the surroundings, gauging the best available routes and sending notifications to the steering column. Automated braking and speed-monitoring functions are then engaged to ensure a smooth parallel or perpendicular result.

Through this, drivers can easily find the perfect parking space for their St. Pawtrick’s Day adventures.

Prepare for filthy fun. The 2017 Tacoma Mud Run will soon begin, delivering a series of dusty trails and towering obstacles. Push yourself to the limits as you compete against both your friends and the elements.


On March 25th the annual Mud Run will offer athletes the chance to test their skills. This two-mile course - which stretches through Swan Creek Park - pits men, women, and children against an ever-fickle terrain. Race through deep-rutted roads; scurry beneath ropes and wires; and battle rolling logs. The route is fraught with challenges... and excitement.

Appearances truly are deceiving. Despite its dirty miles, the Mud Run is meant for participants of all ages - emphasizing good times and endless laughter. Jump through puddles with your family, sampling obstacles of varying difficulty levels. It’s a perfectly messy way to spend a morning.

After crossing the finish line, runners may want to free themselves of that mess. This is why we recommend the 2017 Ford Explorer for all race escapes. This SUV offers hill-descent control - blending Intelligent 4WD performance with an exclusive Terrain Management System. With this, it can effortlessly transition from Swan Creek Park’s rugged trails to the downtown Tacoma streets. It maintains a smooth deceleration, automatically applying brake pressure as needed and delivering balanced torque distributions. This ensures a calm ride from the podium to the highway.

It utilizes variable control cam timing to maximize every revolution, carefully distributing power to the front-wheel-drivetrain. This ensures that no incline proves too steep and no curve proves too sharp, with Ford creating a smooth low-to-high response. Reaching the festival will be an easy task, therefore, and families will arrive right in schedule.

There’s trouble brewing in Seattle - with lonesome figures stalking the alleys, their fedoras pulled low and their eyes filled with secrets. Shadows and silhouettes flood the city, and ominous music lilts always in the background.

The Noir City Festival will soon begin!



Form February 16th to February 22nd, Seattle will host the Noir City Festival - a celebration of classic films and timeless themes. Take the 2017 Ford Explorer to the SIFF Cinema, where a collection of beloved actors (including Burt Lancaster, Sam Jaffe, Lee Marvin, and others) will dazzle on the screen. Each day reveals a new film - with every frame lit with smoky images and claustrophobic angles. This is the event of the year for mystery-fans!

To ensure that those fans arrive safely to the SIFF Cinema, we recommend the 2017 Explorer. This SUV boasts exclusive Curve Control technology - which allows it to deftly handle every freeway exit. It will monitor driver speeds, immediately adjusting reactions (up to 10 miles-per-hour in one second) if they prove too fast for an approaching turn. It constantly scans the road to assess upcoming topography, and it utilizes four-wheel precision to keep itself perfectly balanced.

This ensures that drivers can wind their way through even the tightest city corners - with the 2017 Explorer accommodating sudden twists, traffic jams, and more with ease.
