EL SEGUNDO — Thousands turned out in El Segundo on Sunday as the city held a celebration for its all-stars who captured the Little League World Series championship on Aug. 27.

The players and coaches waved at cheering fans and friends from open cars, in a parade that began at Imperial Highway and made its way through the center of town down Main Street.

Following the parade was a ceremony at the nearby recreation center, during which the players were given keys to the city.
