The pet set ruled at the Elizabeth St. Garden on Saturday afternoon as the Little Italy green oasis put on a Halloween parade for four-legged friends.
Amid all the tension over the upcoming election, not to mention the ongoing pandemic, it was a welcome “paws” for a little fun. Numbers in the garden were controlled, everybody (at least the two-legged ones) wore a mask and there was social distancing.
Almost 50 costumed canines strutted their stuff down the catwalk…er, make that the dogwalk.
The contest winners were Lola and Juicy — dressed as a bee and a sunflower — whose owner also created some buzz with her own bee getup.
Despite all the merriment and furry fun — and the critical need for open space at a time like this — the beloved neighborhood spot remains at risk of being bulldozed. Mayor de Blasio and Councilmember Margaret Chin are continuing to push for a housing project to be built on the unique sylvan, statue-studded site.
All the area’s other politicians and Community Board 2 are on record in support of saving the garden.
