Halloween preparations: how pets will celebrate the holidayby Kate Summel Sport
Halloween is one of the most beloved holidays among Americans, who celebrate it on a grand scale. Carnival costumes go on sale in August, and special shops open, offering goods exclusively for this holiday.
On the day of the holiday, Hollywood stars throw large-scale costume parties, and ordinary Americans walk the streets with their families until late at night, from house to house, collecting sweets and repeating the magical expression "Trick or Treat." It is assumed that if you are not treated to sweets, then you can slightly scare the owners - however, no one has adhered to this tradition for a long time. On the contrary, this is a very cheerful evening, when all residents of the districts leave their homes, neighbors communicate and enjoy meetings. If you also want to celebrate Halloween in a fun and interesting way, then we offer a specially compiled poster of festive events. Many of them take place from the beginning of October.

ast year on Halloween, Peru staged a parade for dogs. The dogs were dressed up as dragons, pirates, supermen. After the procession, the dogs were treated to a festive dinner.
New York celebrates Halloween in its own way.
Considered by many to be one of the most creative and tolerant cities in the world, New York City celebrates Halloween in its own way. There, not only people but also animals can take part in the holiday. What costumes did the city residents wear to their pets - and who has the most impressive outfit?
In New York, where parades, dressing up, theater, performances and all kinds of transformations are loved, Halloween is a big and important holiday. This is an opportunity to be creative and come up with a costume that will amaze and delight those around you. Moreover, this costume can not only be for a person but also for a four-legged friend.
In Lower Manhattan, Tompkins Square Park hosted the 25th annual parade of dogs in Halloween costumes. It was attended by at least 250 four-legged, which flaunted the catwalk and vied for the title of the dog dressed in the most original costume. Together with the dogs, their owners took part in the competition.
What costumes weren't there. A dog dressed as a mechanical piano. A dog dressed as Frida Kahlo, a Mexican artist. A dog dressed like a medieval knight. Dogs in sushi costumes. In a lion costume. In a suit on the theme of the Wizard of the Emerald City. And, of course, there was a dog in the suit of Donald Trump, the e president of the United States.
Tompkins Square Park in the heart of the East Village has not always been so welcoming to visitors. In the history of New York, it is known as the center of violent clashes with the police in the 80s of the last century. Then the police tried to free the park from homeless people who set up a tent city here. Anarchists gathered here, pickets and demonstrations were held, the police dispersed them, and this sometimes ended in dozens and hundreds of arrests. But it seems that the rebellious past of this park is behind. Today, it is not police armed with truncheons that reign here but harmless dogs in a cheerful mood.
First place in the competition went to a family who specially came to participate in the parade from Texas. Danny, Amy and Alice Cox and their three dogs Paco, Pearl and Penelope all sported themed costumes. The theme of the costumes is the Day of All the Dead, a Mexican holiday in memory of relatives who have gone to another world.
