Life wasn't so ruff at Saturday's Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade.

In its 25th year, the Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade, sponsored by Purina's Beggin' division, is the largest annual Halloween doggy costume contest in the world. Organizers say 376 dogs participated in the parade, which drew an estimated crowd of 10,000 people.

Stand-up comedian Stephen Glickman and pet fashion designer Ada Nieves hosted this year's event.

After two rounds of intense competition between the contestants, the Best in Show winner, Dia de los Muertos, received an Apple Watch. The second place winners in each round took home two tickets to "Chicago," "Finding Neverland," or "Something Rotten" and a $50 Visa gift card.
