The hometown hero will get the royal treatment in October.
Grace VanderWaal, the 12-year-old singer, songwriter, and winner of "America's Got Talent" will be honored with a parade in Suffern on Saturday, Oct. 1.
VanderWaal was crowned the winner of the NBC talent competition just two nights ago, winning $1 million and a three-night stand in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood from Oct. 27 through Oct. 29.
The announcement came Friday via a post on the village of Suffern Facebook page, and one day after County Executive Ed Day revealed that VanderWaal would be the first recipient of the Key to Rockland County, an honor reserved for a resident who shows outstanding achievement that reflects well on the county.
