Regardless of how you feel about dog Halloween costumes, the Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade happens every single year, rain or shine — with the former unfortunately being the case this weekend. That didn’t stop die-hards from schlepping their pets out to the East Village for the parade and competition, emceed by none other than red-carpet vet Giuliana Rancic. Spectators were out in full force, too, including one woman in a dog costume who handed out treats from a pumpkin trick-or-treat bucket to the actual dogs, making for one of the more surreal moments of the day.
