A special ceremony is taking place this weekend at Jacksonville’s future dog park.

Members of the community are being asked to illuminate the park by commemorating the lives of deceased pets and honoring those still with us.

Luminaries will be available for $5 and proceeds will go towards upgrading the park.

The future dog park is located off Vandalia, on the shores of Mauvaisterre Lake.

The ceremony begins at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.
