Join us in celebrating the 59th Annual Jackson County Rose Parade and Picnic in the Park on Sunday June 4th, 2017 at 1:00pm. The Picnic in the Park will commence immediately after the parade. The parade route will begin in downtown on South Jackson St. and Mason St. (near Austin Park) and end at the Picnic in the Park inside Ella Sharp Park. This year’s parade theme is “Let’s go to the Movies”.
Part of the Jackson County Rose Parade tradition is selecting a Grand Marshal. The Grand Marshal is again graciously sponsored by Lloyd Ganton retirement Centers.
Individuals nominated for Grand Marshal are residents who have given back to the Jackson Community through service to their city, county, state or country. There are so many Jackson residents who make a difference for this community, and it is important that our citizens have a voice in the selection of the Grand Marshal. Nominations for Grand Marshal are being accepted and can be submitted on our website (http://jacksonrosefestival.org/parade/). Then find the Grand Marshal nomination icon on your right, enter your Grand Marshal candidate’s information and click submit.
