Light drizzle didn't stop costumed pups and their humans from enjoying Schaumburg Park District's Howl-O-Ween Pooch Parade. The event featured an agility course competition, musical chairs, hot dogs and costume contests.
"We had a blast," said Katie Capalungan, who brought dog Grouper. "It's a great opportunity for dogs to socialize."
Pups dressed as superheroes, dinosaurs and other animals competed in friendly contests for treats and toys.
The event concluded with a parade around Meineke Park.
