This year Oli Petit, owner of the Red Bar in Grayton Beach, is the Grand Marshal. The Best in Parade perpetual trophy is up for grabs again, for the best decorated cars trucks or floats
"Every year, our Grand Marshal has held a special place in the parade's history said Paul Vizard, event founder. This year is no exception. Having Oliver Petit - Owner of The Red Bar in Grayton beach - is especially meaningful, after the tragic fire. When the parade first began, it was a small group of cars and a couple of flags. Now the stream of floats and decorations are fantastic, I am very grateful for the support of our sponsors and the community."
