NYC: Haunted hounds: The annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade

Nearly 500 canines and their owners donned elaborate costumes Saturday for the Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade.

There was a doggie Don Draper, a pooch Princess Beatrice, and a bulldog runaway bride, among other adorable pups.

A corgy dressed as a NYC MTA bus was named top dog but wasn’t there to receive the prize.
