HOLLYWOOD, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- New Kids on the Block received a Walk of Fame star Thursday in Hollywood, Calif., 30 years after the original boy band got its start in Boston.
"Fans have been asking for quite a while now when the New Kids on The Block were going to get their star. We want to thank them for 'Hangin' Tough' for waiting patiently to hear the announcement of their favorite boy band star ceremony," Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies said.
A few of the boys took to social media to express their gratitude for the honor and share some photos. Check it out below.
