The Most Epic Costumes From This Annual Halloween Dog Parade

Posted by Whiskers101 on

There’s no denying that <a href="https://www.simplemost.com/foster-puppies-dressed-halloween-costumes-photos/">dogs in costume</a> are a pretty adorable sight to behold. Which is why Halloween dog parades are so popular. On Oct. 28, in fact, hundreds of dogs and their owners gathered for the 28th annual <a href="https://www.thecut.com/2018/10/30-costumed-dogs-from-the-tompkins-square-dog-parade-2018.html">Tompkins Square Park Dog Halloween Parade</a> at East River Park Amphitheater in New York City. Despite a last-minute venue change, this long-running event was still a success, featuring tons of original and creative costumes.

Some pups were in group costumes with their humans on floats, while others sported simple ensembles. But all of the dogs were very good boys and girls who looked absolutely awesome in their costumes. Check out some of the highlights in the pictures below.
