Anyone interested in meeting the Super Bowl champion is welcome to attend the festivities Friday evening and Saturday morning.
The series of free events kicks off Friday at 6:30 p.m. at the Lebanon Elks Club at 633 Park St. There will be music, food, and dancing. Minors are allowed until around 8:30 p.m.
On Saturday morning, the celebration continues at 10:30 at The River Center at 3000 S. Santiam Hwy in Lebanon. The mayor will present McQuistan with a key to the city, and the football star’s former coaches will make speeches.
“He and his brother Pat – they’re twins – are both in the NFL,” said Paul Aziz, the Mayor for the City of Lebanon. Pat McQuistan, a player for the Tennessee Titans, is also expected to be present.
“The family lives here in town and we just want to give a big celebration to honor the hard work, the dedication, and what a great role model he is for the kids.”
Saturday’s events should last a few hours, and anyone is invited to attend. Fans are also welcome to bring items for autographs.
“They (the McQuistan brothers) serve as an inspiration for the kids,” Aziz said. “They look up to them. They know they can aspire to something big. And just because they’re from Lebanon, a small town, doesn’t mean they can’t make it big and do things that are really good.”
