Pigs on Parade at Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington

In 2001 and again in 2007 Rachel the Pig served as inspiration for a “Pigs on Parade” fundraiser of decorated swines across the city. While in and outside of Pike Place I noticed a couple of other pigs that I believe were part of that fundraising effort!
