City leaders from Big Spring's Sister City in Mexico are on the way to West Texas.

It's their first visit to the Basin and Big Spring officials have rolled out the welcome mat.

The partnership is with San Miguel, Mexico, a town near Guadalajara.

NewsWest 9 spoke with Mayor Russ McEwen and he says the group will stay through the weekend.

One of the main events will be this Friday when they'll dedicate a statue given to Big Spring from members of the Sister City.

The statue is sitting in the Mount Olive Cemetery right next to the Chapel.
