The city of Sunrise is hosting a candlelight vigil Friday to honor the victims of the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

The vigil will be held at the Sunrise Civic Center Amphitheatre, located at 10610 W. Oakland Park Boulevard, at 6:30 p.m.

Participants will share a moment of silence to honor those killed.

The names of the victims will be read, and 26 large angels will be illuminated in their memory. The lighted angels will later be placed in an arc along the lake in front of Sunrise City Hall.
