NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Bernie Sanders is coming home.

The Democratic presidential candidate and Brooklyn native will mark his return to the campaign trail -- after suffering a heart attack two weeks ago -- with a rally Saturday afternoon in Long Island City, Queens. 

The 90-minute event, called "Bernie's Back Rally," kicks off at 1 p.m. in Queensbridge Park. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. 

The Sanders campaign is also teasing supporters that a "special guest" will attend the rally. The Twittersphere is buzzing, with most guesses being Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Bronx native who represents part of the borough, as well as part of Queens.
