Hudson Valley pet owners are ready to dress up their four-legged friends in hopes of earning big cash.

The third annual Boris & Robyn Show Halloween Pet Costume Contest will take place on October 28. And this year the best costume will get $500.

Pets and their owners will assemble at Petco on Route 9 in Poughkeepsie for an afternoon of four-legged trick-or-treating and other family friendly activities. Meta Marcy will be giving pet psychic readings, the Hudson Valley Ghostbusters will be on hand for photo opportunities and the Ei's Fries food truck will be rolling by with delicious food and refreshments.

Of course, the main event is the annual costume contest where pets of all shapes and sizes will strut their stuff on the Halloween runway in front of our panel of judges to see who will take home this year's $500 grand prize. Additional prizes will be given out for second and third place.

To participate, just show up at Petco in Poughkeepsie between 11am and 1pm on October 28. You'll be able to register your pet for the contest on site. A  $5 donation to Pets Alive is suggested for each entry.
