Pets show off their costumes for Calgary ‘Howloween’ parade

Dogs (and one cat) strutted their stuff through Calgary’s Central Memorial Park on Halloween for a costumed parade.

Saturday’s pet costume parade was put on by the Calgary Public Library and Calgary Expo.

The physically distanced event ended with pumpkin treats for the participants at Park by Sidewalk Citizen.

Take a look at the paw-fect costumes below.
