18 Best Costumes from the Halloween Dog Parade in NYC's Thompkins Square Park

18 Best Costumes from the Halloween Dog Parade in Thompkins Square ParkNew York just seems like the best place ever to live, doesn’t it?

This past weekend New York was home to the 22nd Annual Thompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade. Hundreds of dogs dressed up for this fun occasion and brought out their human friends to celebrate Halloween.

This is always a fun event to check out (I’ve never been, but the pictures area always awesome) and this year was no different. We saw dogs of all sizes dressed up as everything from pop stars, political figures, popular books and some of the more traditional Halloween characters like skeletons, pirates and martians.

Click through to see 18 of the best costumes from this year’s Halloween Dog Parade:
