Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade

I've been a little bogged down with work this week and haven't had much time to blog, but ,like many places, New York is in full on Halloween mode at the moment and this Saturday sees the 16th Annual Halloween Dog Parade held in Tompkins Square Park in the East Village.

I've never been before, but it looks like a fun event, so I'm going to try and stop by and check out the dogs in their costumed glory. The short video above is of last year's event. Enjoy!!

This would be heaven for me. Seriously.

Dogs rock my world.

and

Dogs in costume make me happier than Paris Hilton finding a new boy toy.

Pictures are a MUST!

Hi Heather, I'm with you. I'm excited to stop by and Tel Aviv is planning to take photos so I shall post pics if we make it - rain is forecast :-(

Hi Amel, funny huh!! I don't know if this is common practice elsewhere in the US, but I thought it looked like a fun thing to check out. Apparently there's $5000 in prize money to be had!!

Someday some superevolved canine will turn the tables and then they will be taking humans for walks!

Amel's Realm said...

Yeah, it's hilarious to see, esp. some dogs that seemed to hate the costumes ha ha ha ha...

$5000? WOW!!! Maybe I should borrow someone's dog and join in hi hi hi...

How cute. I LOVE doggy's. Hope you have fun.

That is hilarious. I live two blocks away, so if I remember I'll poke my head over to take a look. And maybe I'll dress my cat up as Superman and bring him with me.

That looks like a lot of fun! I agree with Heather, pictures would be VERY good! Hope the weather holds out for you guys.

Thanks for the comments guys. Got a little caught up in work today, but I will definitely try and get some photos. I believe if it's rained off they do it on sunday and the weather is supposed to be good then, although I'll be sans photographer, Tel Aviv that day I think.

Ha Ha, is it wise to take your cat with all those dogs :-)

See ya kids, I'm dashing out to work from home and do my laundry - oh the glamour :-)

Hey Mark, Alcoment, thanks for the tags, I'll try my best to get around to the memes, but really slammed with work at the moment and don't have much time for anything else, I'm struggling to update the blog :-) Best, Fish
