Join the Largest Dog Run Halloween Parade in the U.S.
Halloween just got beastlier. The Tompkins Square dog run is pleased to announce the 21st Annual Tompkins Square Halloween Parade. On Saturday, October 22, hundreds of costumed canines will march on Tompkins Square Park to participate in the country’s largest Halloween parade for dogs.
This year, they will be competing for thousands of dollars in prizes, including two iPods and of course, bragging rights for the year. All proceeds go to the N.Y.C. Department of Parks & Recreation for the maintenance and upkeep of the newly restored Tompkins Square Dog Run.
