Welcome home, Becca.

Pizzi and her daughter, Taylor, will ride on top of a fire truck from Belmont High School to Belmont Center accompanied by the Belmont High School Marching Band and local youth sports teams.
Pizzi will arrive at the Belmont Center headquarters of parade sponsor Belmont Savings Bank where she will join town and bank officials before addressing and have photos taken with her fans and residents.

Food will be provided, and music will be performed in the bank.
