BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Pups are putting their paws together in anticipation of a big event in Biloxi this Saturday. Leaders will cut the ribbon on the city's second dog park at Hiller Park. It is part of the park's 74th anniversary celebration.
The dog park will be named Pixie Memorial Dog Park after Councilwoman Dixie Newman's pet. Officials say the Ward 3 councilwoman played a vital role in raising money for the park.
Celebrations are set to kick off at 10 a.m. Saturday. Refreshments will be available.
The city's other park for pooches is on Popp's Ferry Road.
