A group of pit bull lovers plans to hold a pit bull parade to celebrate after a judge threw out a 10-year-old ban on the dogs in a Rhode Island city.

WLNE-TV reports the nonprofit group Pit Bulls for PTSD plans to hold the parade on Sunday in Pawtucket.

A Superior Court judge on Tuesday found a city ordinance that had banned pit bulls since 2004 was invalid. The ruling follows a 2013 state law that prohibits cities and towns from banning specific dog breeds.

The parade will start at a dog park and then loop through the neighborhood. It will end with a free dog training session.

Pit Bulls for PTSD trains pit bulls to become service dogs for people with post-traumatic stress disorder and children with autism.
