A community celebration for the Big Sky All-Stars has been set for Sept. 3.

A citywide parade will weave through downtown streets and end at Dehler Park with a 6 p.m. celebration that will include team introductions, honors and a fundraising barbecue.

The team plays for the Little League U.S. championship Saturday at 1 p.m. in South Williamsport, Pa., against Huntington Beach, Calif.

Big Sky Little League President Tim Leuthold and other league officials as well as representatives with the Billings Chamber/Convention and Visitors Bureau, Downtown Billings Association, Billings Gazette Communications, KTVQ-2 Television and the City of Billings are helping plan the event. More details, including the parade route, are expected to be released Wednesday.

"From banners to buns, Billings businesses are calling us looking for ways to help make this celebration as big as the Little Leaguer's dreams," John Brewer, Billings Chamber/Convention Visitors Bureau president and CEO, said in a news release. "The definitive weekend date was chosen per Big Sky Little League officials who wanted to give coaches, players and families the chance to get home, check in at work or school and then be recognized properly by a community that has supported them every step of the journey."
