Haute Dogs Howl’oween Parade

 

I am guesstimating there was 2,000+ humans and their pets at today’s pet parade. Lot’s more than I expected. Judging by the huge turnout, this event is a big deal in Long Beach. Parking was tough but I found a spot three blocks away in the neighborhood. The weather was typical Southern California…. fabulous!

This is Max. He was one of the spectators. I think he was smiling the whole time.

And the parade starts! There was lots of tail wagging. I truly believe the dogs knew something special was happening. At the end of the event awards were given out for the best costumes. In my opinion, all the participants were winners, so I have no idea who won. Look at all the work that went into these costumes and floats!
