WICKER PARK—Creative canine costumes were all the rage at the annual Boopalooza celebration in Wicker Park Sunday.

'Hipster Dog' beat out an estimated 100 other costumed canines and won the vote after eliciting an especially loud round of cheering. Second place went to a dog modeled after Toto from the Wizard of Oz.

Boopalooza is produced by the Wicker Park Advisory Council, Wicker Park Garden Club and Mosaic Church Chicago in collaboration with the Chicago Park District. The Special Service Area SSA#33 supported the event with a $5,000 community grant.
