Halloween Dog Parade, New York City: Adorable Dog Costumes 2021


The annual Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade took place last Sunday, October 24th at the East River Amphitheater on New York's Lower East Side, bringing together thousands of New Yorkers and their costumed pets from all over the New York metro area. While the parade is no longer held at Tompkins Square Park, the event is the largest Halloween Dog costume event in the world. Photographers and Videographers James and Karla Murray witnessed first hand the canine costumes and shared in their YouTube video many of the cutest and most creative choices, including the ultimate grand prize winner, Essential Workers by Ruben Santana & his cute dog Amun. The other adorable winners include a sweet Cavechon rescue, DogNamed89 dressed as the Presidential Portrait "Bark Obama by Kehinde Woofy", a dog dressed as Jeff Bezos, the founder and chairmen of Amazon rocketing off with his Blue Origin rocket accompanied by the owner in an Amazon Prime-inspired outfit, a dressed to the nines Snoop Dog and his over the top posse, a huge Great Dane and his flamboyant owner dressed in Maleficent costumes complete with large wings and horns from the dark fantasy adventure film directed by Robert Stromberg, a family and their dog dressed as characters from Crazy Rich Asians, the romantic comedy-drama film directed by Jon M. Chu, a small chihuahua dressed as a gorgeous butterfly. There are so many other costumes which show off the owners creativity and love for their four-legged friends.

We are architectural/interior photographers & videographers based in NYC. We started our video channel to act an artistic intervention to help raise awareness of the importance of small independently-owned businesses and the unique character these shops add to the streets and neighborhoods of New York City. In our videos we will showcase portraits of storefronts and shop owners in New York City & beyond and capture moments of city life that capture the spirit, energy and cultural diversity of individual neighborhoods. We also bring our rescue dog, Hudson along whenever we can.
