Long Island City will be having its very own Halloween pet parade later this month.

The LIC Flea & Food market is sponsoring a “Howl-o-ween” event on Oct. 19, where owners are invited to dress their pets in costume.

At stake is more than $700 in prizes from Ricky’s NYC, Kiki LIC Pet Photography, Pooch Pals and LIC Dog Walk.

Several venders will be selling costumes on-site at the LIC Flea market.

Following the parade, Kiki LIC Pet Photography will offer portrait sessions for owners and their pets.

Meanwhile, residents are urged to give old chew toys to Rock & Rawhide, a nonprofit organization that helps dogs and cats in animal shelters.

The non-profit will also be collecting blankets, treats, cat scratch pads and other items. All items must be clean.


WHEN: Saturday, October 19th, 11am-12pm

WHERE: LIC Flea & Food:Waterfront entrance near 5th Street and Basin Road
