12 Adorable Photos From the 2013 NYC Halloween Dog Parade


What would Halloween be without a dog parade of puppies in full costume? It would be nothing so the fun people of New York City pull together — people and pooches — to put on one of the most adorable parades around.

This year, the 23rd annual NYC Halloween Dog Parade took place, again, at Tompkins Square Park and dogs from all over came to show off their Halloween spirit. The costumes ranged from typical hot dogs to more pop-culture references of famous singers and TV shows. The photos are adorable and so I wanted to share with you 12 photos of the cute dogs all dressed up for Halloween.
