Thousands of Knights will descend upon Church Street this evening in honor of the University of Central Florida's perfect football season and self-proclaimed national championship.

Mayor Buddy Dyer will present the team with a key to the city at tonight's block party and pep-rally, which will begin at 6 p.m. and is expected to last three hours. 

Church Street will be closed between South Garland and Orange avenues.

The family-friendly event is free.
