NYC’s 2nd largest doggie costume competition returns in style and grace. Jenn Wehrung will MC, and judges Natassa Contini and Nina Agüero Rios will award gifts for the best dressed dogs – and maybe also to synchronized owners. Woof!


Gifts have been generously donated by Chateau Le Woof, Friends with Four Paws, The Pupper Cup, Pupstoria, La Tour Caline, and Queens Animal Hospital. Dog ice cream will be served by Pupper Cup. Yum!


Sign up between 12 (noon) – 1pm on-site the day-of.


Flight of The Gourds
1–4:30pm; Judging at 4:00pm; the Gourds take flight at 4:30pm!


Two teams will square off in a pumpkin carving competition: Kids Vs. Adults. A group of kids will challenge our artist fellows to make the most beautiful, ugliest, slimy-est, most bedazzled pumpkins in the tri-state area. Participating artist fellows include:


Ginny Huo
Jeffrey Meris
Monica Torres
Rachel Frank
Kelly Li
Bel Falleiros


Costumed VIP judges will select the winning pumpkins, which will be awarded catapult rides into the history books – making the contest NYC’s #1 biggest pumpkin carving and catapulting competition.


Bond Street Theatre’s Shinbone Alley Stilt Band
The Shinbone Alley Stilt Band will punctuate all of these events with jazz performances high above our heads from stilts.


Delicious food will be available from Glady’s Bienvenida Restaurante – food truck on-site!


This event is sponsored by our friends at NYC Ferry.
