Barking Mad


GREENPOINT AND FORT GREENE Okay, we admit it – little dogs dressed up in ornate Halloween costumes might be one of the most adorable things ever. On Saturday at noon, Fort Greene Park hosts the 12th annual Great PUPkin Dog Costume Contest, alongside the annual Fort Greene Park Halloween Festival. Registration is at 11:30 with a $5 suggested donation, and 6 winners will take home prizes from Chez Oskar, Scooterfood and more. Then on Sunday, the District Dog Boutique and Spa holds its Halloween parade for things that go woof in the night. At 1pm, animals in costume are encouraged to show up at McGolrick Park, where they can strut their stuff and compete for prizes like Best in Show and Best Duo or Pack (interspecies groups allowed!). As an added bonus, $20 microchipping will also be available.
