Alert! This is not a drill: there will be pups of all types and sizes struttin’ their stuff in costume this Halloween weekend. The day will include a pop-up dog park for your pet to make new pals, a costume contest, activities like face painting for the non-furry kiddos and live music. The pooch parade takes off at 2:30 p.m. This is the one time of year when it’s acceptable to admire dogs that have been clothed and adorned—don’t miss it! 915 27th Street, www.exploremidtown.org/midtown-halloween-festival.
