The Thornton Park District has announced that they will hold a grand opening ceremony for their new dog park on Thursday.

According to Thornton Park's Facebook, the ribbon-cutting ceremony will be at 6 p.m. and will be attended by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer as well as Commissioner Patty Sheehan. 

Following the ribbon-cutting, there will be a dog costume contest – the grand prize is a basket of goodies donated by Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming, as well as a variety of prizes for the owner, including two free tickets to the Wine & Art Walk. 

The park is located at Constitution Green, at Summerlin and Jackson Ave., and even those who are not planning to enter a dog in the costume contest are welcome to attend.
