That is no less true if you happen to be a dog.
Here are some of the most pride-filled pets we spotted at the parade this weekend:
Charles might be the best-dressed
Sadie showed up early to pregame for the parade at Hunters Nightclub’s outdoor bar.
Amelia gets bonus points for coordinating with her owner’s color scheme.
Booboo was keeping cool in the 93-degree heat.
Blanche took a moment before the parade to pose for her fans.
Barney is actually a very good dog, as evidenced by the fact that he was willing to dress up in this (adorable) costume.
