Fun Events in NYC: Halloween Dog Parade

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go to the Halloween Dog Parade at Tompkins Square Park. The suggested donation to enter the organized parade was $5 and there were plenty of adorable dogs in creative costumes walking around the park. CNN calls the event, “the largest dog costume parade in the world.” This year, Purina Beggin’ sponsored the parade, and it was the 26th time the parade has occurred. There were all different types of dogs dressed up as everything from other types of animals to witty pop culture references! There were so many people there. It's definitely a favorite event for many, especially for students at Fordham!

Many dog owners coordinated with their precious pups to create a perfect pairing! This duo certainly wins the Ghostbusters coordinated costume:

Other pups really fit their costumes, like this dog dressed up as his look-alike dog in the Bush's Baked Beans commercial!

Be sure to go to this really fun event next year if you have a chance! It was also easy to find new and interesting places to eat nearby. After the dog parade, we ate at a place called Korilla BBQ, a delicious eatery that we stumbled upon while walking back to the subway. There's never a boring weekend at Fordham; there's always something going on around campus or in New York City. The dog parade was just one inexpensive thing to see in the city, and there are constantly new events and activities nearby.
