Following the devastating announcement that the annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade had been canceled, the community banded together to ensure its return in 2018 with a successful crowdfunding campaign. At the final hour, the fest was brought back, and all rejoiced– after all, what would Halloween in New York even be like without this beloved canine spectacle?
From the obscure (Fung Wah Bus, anyone?) to the unmistakable (superheroes and food), the newly relocated annual dog parade took East River Park Amphitheater by storm on Sunday afternoon. From Biggie Paws to Zoltar, we saw it all.
