Every year, hundreds of dogs descend on New York City for a competition steeped in tradition and honor. Their owners plan for it for weeks and months. No, we’re not talking about Westminster. It’s the annual Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade.
We spotted trendy pop-culture costumes like Walter White from Breaking Bad, a food truck and "Barknado" — plus old classics like a princess and a monster. Flip through our photo gallery from Saturday's costume contest, and find out who took home first place.
