Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean fun is done in Coney Island!

The People’s Playground’s biggest amusement park hosted a fall festival on Oct. 19.

Some 25 dogs dressed up in their best costumes and paraded through Luna Park, while kids and parents got pumpkins and face-paintings — all part of the funzone’s Halloween Harvest.

Judges gave out wristbands for rides and concert tickets to the owners of the cutest, funniest, and best-behaved canines, and all the pups received a doggy bag full of treats.

Luna leaders said they were happy to let hound-lovers bring their hairy companions to the park.

“This past weekend, Luna Park was proud to have hosted not only our human visitors, but their furry friends as well for the Halloween Dog Day,” said Valerio Ferrari, president of Central Amusement International, which owns Luna Park. “The dogs seemed to have a wonderful day in the park and really brought out their personalities throughout the day with the costume contest and parade.”
