    Political strategist Kellyanne Conway waves to reporters as she leaves Trump Tower on December 5, 2016 in New York City.

    Republican President-elect Donald Trump's campaign manager is returning to her New Jersey roots to lead a parade.

    Kellyanne Conway will be grand marshal of Saturday's Christmas parade in Hammonton, where Trump topped Democrat Hillary Clinton in the November election.

    The Hammonton Fire Department says Conway was raised in Atco and graduated from St. Joseph's High School in Hammonton in 1985. She spent summers working at Indian Brand Blueberry Farms before leaving for college in Washington, D.C. Seen in Trump's Orbit: Jared Kushner, Jack MaSeen in Trump's Orbit: Jared Kushner, Jack Ma

    Conway will also receive a key to the city.

    "We are thrilled that Kellyanne was able to take the time to come back home and join us for such a special event," said longtime firefighter and councilman Mickey Pullia. "We are so proud of the good work she is doing with the president-elect and look forward to presenting her with a key to the Town of Hammonton."

    The parade begins at 7 p.m. at Bellevue Avenue and Horton Street.

    Conway regularly makes media appearances on behalf of Trump and has even been spoofed on Saturday Night Live. A memorable skit about her day off shows her free time interrupted repeatedly by having to go on CNN to explain Trump's latest tweet or statement.
