    Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade -

    The 24th annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade, presented by Beggin', brought out over-the-top canine costumes on Oct. 25 in New York.

    Dog owners brought their four-legged friends to the park to participate in the parade and a costume contest. The contest, which was broken up into three rounds, required dogs and their owners to strut down a runway.

    Parade participants gave a donation of $5. All funds raised went to Friends of First Run, who maintain the Tompkins Square Dog Park.
