Summer is ending and the Bears are getting restless because they know Fall is coming. The XL Bears of Seattle are preparing for hibernation but before they start settling down in West Seattle caves with their husbears, they’re throwing their annual Labor Day XL Bear Run bash at venues all over town.
The furry fun starts TOMORROW, Thursday, August 30th and continues through Labor Day, Monday, September 3rd with more events than you can shake a beer at, with the center of activity at CC Attle’s but other major events also happening at Neumos, The Seattle Eagle, Steamworks and Purr. (Uh, where’s The Cuff on this list? Since when do bears not party there?) A pass getting you into all events is available HERE but you can buy individual tickets to most events as well. (And, they’re also raising some money for the Seattle Humane Society…check out this page to see how you can help our 4 legged furry friends…)
For a full list of events, check out the XL Bear Run website…the Big Events are:

Remember…it CAN be dangerous to feed the Bears. If you are approached by a bear, it’s best to just give them all the goodies in your picnic basket…
