At the 29th annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade



The 29th annual edition of the Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade returned to the East River Park Amphitheater yesterday.

Despite the rain, there was a big crowd, who brought umbrellas...



Heart of Chelsea Veterinary Group served as the sponsor (part of the $17,500 sponsorship goes to the year-round maintenance of the Tompkins Square Dog Run) ... while 1010 WINS Midday Anchor Susan Richard served as the emcee.



EVG correspondent Stacie Joy was there to snap photos of the canine competitors, dressed as everything from ramen noodles to a box of White Claw Hard Seltzer. Movies were again a prime source of costume inspiration. Films spotted included "Midsommar," "The Wizard of Oz," "The Exorcist," "Alien" and "Star Wars."

Is there a dog run in East River Park?

Just curious because maybe there should be so Thompkins can be relieved of the current take over of owners who refuse to go to the dog run. Most of the reasons I've heard is that the current dog run is not big enough (ignoring the large amount of people who raise dogs to not play well with others but still parade their dogs around in public areas). It looks like there are a lot of dogs in the EV from these photos so it might be a good idea to expand the dog run in a park with the capacity. Though to be clear East River Park has more places for humans so maybe it's best to give into the eventuality that Thompkins will turn into a giant muddy area for dogs and their owners.

Such patient, understanding doggos. Silly humans.

The dogs are great....but the people should not be allowed to dress up.
