Saturday is the 21st Annual Halloween Dog Parade at Tompkins Square Park.
Saturday, Oct. 22 from noon until 3 p.m., spectators will gather in Tompkins Square Park to watch dogs on parade. All proceeds from the 21st annual Halloween Dog Parade will go to the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation for the upkeep of the Tompkins Square dog run, which is the city’s largest. The parade will be held inside the dog run; enter the park on 9th Street, between Avenue A and B.

Tucked away in a corner of Corlear’s Hook Park, where Cherry and Jackson streets meet the southern end of East River Park, a mulch-and-straw-covered fenced lot awaits four-legged visitors and their caretakers.
Not that many come. Corlear’s Hook Park Dog Run is one of the city’s most under-used dog parks. Unlike its popular (and well-maintained) counterparts in Tompkins Square, Union Square and Madison Square parks, it’s often empty for hours at a time.
