A New York City park went to the dogs over the weekend — but it was for a good cause.

Thousands of primped and powdered pooches paraded before the judges in Tompkins Square Park in the city’s 27th annual Halloween Dog Parade, Saturday, benefiting the park’s dog run.

“It’s cool to see how people get creative,” one resident said. “I feel like people get more into it with their dogs than they do in their own Halloween costumes.”

The first prize winners got tickets to see “Hamilton” on Broadway.
