Happy Halloween // Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade 2013

I wouldn’t say that I am particularly a dog person… but, dogs in Halloween costumes?  Who can deny those cuties?!  This was enough to convince me to join my roommates for the 23rd annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade.  Boy… we were not disappointed.  Here are only a few of the awesome and adorable costumes that we came across.

This pilot was definitely not patrolling the skies, but scanned the crowds of cameras around him and Count Dogula.  Big and small, there were dogs strutting their stuff and striking a pose everywhere in Tompkins Square Park!

We saw all sorts of extremely creative costumes and many spirited owners who dressed up with their costumed canines. Can you spot where Waldog is?  Or, the Fossil Fuel Refinery?  Hey there, Superdog.  Being a little nosy there.

By far, this lady took the cake for the best costume and punk queen of the day!  It was definitely her way or the highway.


And… of course, after a great start to the day, we cannot end without some good, simple vanilla waffles with a freshly made mint lemonade and chai latte from Westville East.  Yum!
