New York’s pooches put their best paws forward this weekend for the annual Halloween dog parade dressed in costumes that ranged from sweet to shockingly frightening, to the delight of dog-lovers across the city.
The 29th Annual Tompkins Square Dog Parade unfolded on Sunday and hundreds of New Yorkers took to the streets to joined the fun.
Some of the most notable canine costumes included a dog dressed as Rihanna with bedazzled sunglasses and a gauzy pink dress, a French Mastiff dressed as a lion and two climate conscious dogs dressed as the world on fire and Greta Thunberg.
The pups competed for the crown of Best Dressed, which went to a dog dressed as Snoopy & the Red Baron based off the beloved Charlie Brown episode, while the Runner Up title was shared by four pooches dressed as Ramen Noodles, the horror movie Midsommar, The Exorcist; The Wizard of Oz; and 158 Global Warming.
