Fine Arts Institute of Edmond will welcome people and their animals on Saturday.

Pets in the Park, a new event, will include a pet parade and a pet art contest starting with registration at 10:30 a.m. at Mitzi's Park, 27 E Edwards.

Professional pet photos will be taken along with a variety of pet art activities. There also will be a raffle for pet king and queen.

“Children's favorite subjects when drawing and painting are animals and pets,” said executive director Shannon Price. “We are excited to offer this family-friendly event combining the love of animals and art.”

All pets must have vaccinations and be on leashes.

There is a $5 charge to participate in the pet parade. Mayor Charles Lamb and Councilwoman Victoria Caldwell will be looking for the best in show, best dressed, most unusual pet, cutest critter and best behaved.

People are encouraged to dress pets in fun costumes or attire for the parade on the sidewalk in front of the Fine Arts Institute.

Edmond Animal Welfare shelter staff will bring dogs and cats for adoption for $25 and offer advice on how to pick a perfect pet for the family.

Barbeque vendors will offer pork sampling kits available with the People's Choice BBQ contest. Drinks will be available for purchase.
