Costumed Pooches Turn Out for Tompkins Square Park's Halloween Parade
From Bed Intruders to bedbug dogs, inventive – and spooky! – looks stole the show
Tompkins Square Park, New York City’s oldest and largest dog run, hosted its 20th annual Halloween Dog Parade on Saturday, and the contestants certainly did not disappoint.
Hundreds of dogs – and hundreds more humans – turned out for a beautiful fall day in the park, and watched as a stick of butter, a Breakfast at Tiffany’s and even a mattress full of bedbugs made their way around the exhibition area.
Plenty of pooches won prizes, but the ultimate honor went to Gracie and her owner Dewey Moss. The pug played Scarlett O’Hara in Woof with the Wind, and her elaborate getup won first place in her round, as well as the title of Best in Show!
