Pupnic in the Park, a celebration of all things dog-related, gave people a chance to show off their pooches and contribute to improvements to a northwest Oklahoma City park.

The celebration, sponsored by the Fairdale-Belle Isle-Riviera Neighborhood Association, was Saturday at Ross Park.

The purpose of the event was to raise money for dog waste bag stations and landscaping improvements for the park, said Emily Garman, event co-chairwoman.

One goal is to help buy trees to replace ones that were damaged in ice storms, Garman said.
