The Haute Dog Howl’oween parade gives pet owners the chance to dress up their dogs and parade them around in all their Halloween finery. The latest installment was on Sunday in Long Beach, and contained a pet adoption fair in addition to the parade, which draws up to 500 costumed dogs each year. Haute Dog uses the proceeds from the event to benefit local animal nonprofits.

Costumes this year really went for the puns: Pupperoni Pizza, a French bulldog as Frenchie Fries, a Boston Terrier leading a colonial tea party. But we also give props to the doggie Dole Whip and a charming Stranger Things tableau. Oh, and the woman who dressed up her rooster.
