The Winners of the Hudson Valley’s Best Pet Costumes for 2018
The results are in, and these Hudson Valley pets have the very best Halloween costumes of 2018.
The Boris and Robyn Show on 101.5 WPDH hosted the fourth annual Pet Halloween Costume Contest on Saturday. Despite cold and wet weather, pet owners flocked to Petco on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie with their costumed companions in tow.
Boris, Roybn and a representative from Pets Alive sat at the judging table while the dressed up pets paraded across the Petco showroom floor. Animals decked out as characters from movies and tv, hilarious occupations and four-legged food items stole the show.
Here are some of the more outrageous costumes that came through the door on Saturday.
