Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.

Tompkins Square Park was hopping this weekend. Queen Elizabeth was there, as was Lady Gaga in her famous meat dress.

Other costumes included a canine Scarlett O'Hara, two small dogs dressed as bed bugs perched on a tiny bed, and, of course, iPad dog - inspiration if you're still hounding down ideas for your own costume this year.

It's MORNING EDITION.
