Elaborately costumed dogs and their owners crowded Tompkins Square Park for the annual Halloween Dog Parade on this warm, sunny afternoon. Proceeds went to the Department of Parks and Recreation for the upkeep of the dog run. Check out our 19 favorite food costumes below, from tacos and hot dogs (such a popular choice!), to sodas and fruit.
A Thanksgiving turkey; the costume is homemade.
This tiny tea party is a movable feast
A cozy taco
A happy strawberry
An emotional appeal to Mayor Bloomberg
A little pumpkin
And a bigger pumpkin
Marie Antoinette and her fancy tiered cake
A boiled lobster
The hot dogs start here
Who wore it best?
A wee cow
This dog’s name is Bobby Flay (really)
Hard to tell, but this one’s a banana
Bacon and eggs!
