The Wausau Common Council has adopted rules allowing pets on downtown's 400 Block, except during special events.
Tuesday night the council voted 3-2 in favor of a resolution that allows pets to accompany their owners as long as they're leashed.
Pets will have to stay home during special events, including the Wednesday night concert series.
Assistance dogs and animals performing in special park events are always allowed.
The new rules are effective immediately.
