The city of West University Place is making ready for the All Stars' parade.

West University Place’s Senior Division All Stars will be presented with the keys to the city, in a ceremony tonight at Wallin Field.

The 2009 World Series winners will also get a proclamation from West U Mayor Bob Kelly.

Preparations are underway for a parade Thursday down University Blvd., followed by a ceremony honoring the team at
Wallin Field.

The team will give Mayor Kelly an autographed baseball, which will go on display in a trophy case at the City of West U’s new Rec Center. The center is under construction on Bellaire Blvd.

West U City Manager Michael Ross said University Blvd. will be closed from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for the parade. Residents of West U and neighboring Southside Place have been notified about the festitivies.

Ross said the keys to the city don’t actually open anything.

“They’re just for looks. They’ll look good in a display case,” Ross said.

The team has been the talk of the town since winning the 2009 World Series on August 22.
