Happy Howl-oween! Costumed dogs rule at Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade


Hundreds descended on Tompkins Square Park in New York City's East Village neighborhood Saturday for an event that's been called the biggest Halloween costume contest in the world ... for dogs.

The 24th Annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade in Tompkins Square Park drew canines big and small, a slew of enthusiastic owners, and even some curious dog lovers to see who would be crowned Best in Show. The big prize ultimately went to three adorable pooches, Baxter, Gianna and Giupetto, whose loving owners Diana Lucci and Linn Consovoy dressed them up in an elaborate "Titanic" costume.

In between countless banana dogs and hot dogs were countless creative looks, like a dog dressed as "Crazy Eyes" from "Orange is the New Black" and another channeling Robin Williams' character Parry from the 1991 movie "The Fisher King." Other hits included a "Woof of Wall Street," a pope dog, and even a couple Teddy Roosevelts.
