(Undated) -- Olympic swimmer Hali Flickinger will be welcomed home with a parade on Labor Day, according to Southwestern Regional Police.

The parade will be held in the morning along Main Street in Spring Grove, York County, and drivers should expect traffic delays, starting at 9:00 a.m.

It will end at the Spring Grove Borough Park in the 200 block of East Railroad Avenue.

Fans will be able to meet and greet with Flickinger at the park.

She also will be honored at a York Revolution game that night.

The 22-year-old Flinkinger, in her first Olympics, placed seventh at the Summer Games in Rio in the 200-meter butterfly.

She also posted the fastest time of her career in the preliminaries.
