The dog parade in Tompkins Square Park is one of the highlights of New York City’s Halloween build up. The park is a favorite among dog owners in the East Village. The dog park is always full of dogs of all sizes, where owners and pooches are familiar with each other. On Oct. 21, the park held its annual parade with a costume contest. Pop culture references from the past year were popular choices for New Yorkers’ pooches, featuring a couple of bulldogs dressed as Rick and Morty and a Daenerys Targaryen. The elaborate costumes and details of the dogs’ costumes proved yet again that dogs are often the children of New Yorkers, and the parade is the party of the year.
