This year’s Grand Marshal is Warren Jones and “Citizens of Honor” are Anna Maria de Freitas and David Pass. Each has made significant community contributions and has shared so much of their time and talent with San Juan County making them outstanding choices.
The parade will start at 10:30 am on July 4th and proceed down Spring Street through downtown Friday Harbor. For additional information about participating in the 2018 Friday Harbor Independence Day Parade, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Chamber Office, 360-378-5240.
