Each year the parade committee spends countless hours sifting through nominations and suggestions for its Grand Marshal. We look for someone who has “put Owensboro on the map” in a positive way, or someone who has made a contribution to our great community. This year, we are proud to announce that our very own Diane Earle has been named Grand Marshal. Full Story
