It's officially here.

The signage marking Philadelphia's official "Boyz II Men Boulevard" a month after City Council unanimously passed a resolution to rename the section of South Broad Street from Christian to Carpenter streets after the award-winning R&B group is now up.

Nathan Morris, Wayna Morris and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men joined the city's dedication ceremony Saturday at 11 a.m. in front the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, where they once attended.

Councilmen Kenyatta Johnson and Mark Squilla, who sponsored the resolution, were also present during the ceremony ahead of Boyz II Men's Saturday night performance at the Wells Fargo Center as part of its "Total Package Tour."

The event is also a preview of Wawa Welcome America, the city's annual series of celebrations before Independence Day.
