HALIFAX, N.S. - Halifax mayor Peter Kelly has declared Sidney Crosby Day as the Pittsburgh Penguins superstar brings home the Stanley Cup for a celebration with family and a few thousand of his friends.

Crosby is starting the day by landing in a Sea King helicopter at the Halifax Dockyard, where he will speak to members of the military and their families.

He'll then lead a parade through his hometown of Cole Harbour.

Thousands of people are expected to show up to greet the hockey star and fans will have the opportunity to pose with the Stanley Cup and ask Crosby questions.

People will also be able to visit Sidney's Hall of Fame to view photos, trophies, hockey sweaters and sticks from his career.

A performance by Canadian rocker Sam Roberts will cap off the festivities.
