The preparations of Halloween 2019 have begun with everyone deciding on their costume. The spooky observance which originally began as a way to honour the dead and spirits have over time popularised into a festive celebration. The Halloween celebrations have not been limited to just humans but people enthusiastically dress up their pets like dogs and cats for Halloween. The city of New York every year holds a Halloween parade for dogs. And the 29th Annual Tompkins Square Dog Parade took place on Sunday, October 20 in Manhattan. Over hundreds of pooches were a part of this celebration and dogs were dressed up in different characters from Game of Thrones to food dishes like a pizza, chicken ramen and a hot dog. Adorable pictures of these pooches who were part of the Halloween parade have been doing rounds on social media. Halloween 2019 Costume Ideas for Pets: Spooky Yet Cute Dog Outfits That Every Pup Parent Should Have (View Pics).

The Annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade sees over hundreds of participating dogs and spectators gather in thousands just to see them march. The winners get over thousands of dollars in prizes, so it is serious competition for all the participants. Dog owners put in their best to dress up their pooches and make them stand out. This parade has been a centre of attraction every year and looked up to by everyone. A lot of the pooches were out to give some messages, while others put their fashionable foot (paw) forward.
