There were many nominations from the community for them to choose from. For the first time there was a three way tie. Council Person Mary McGinnis made a motion that all three be Grand Marshal. The motion received a second and the Council delivered a unanimous vote to do so.
The Grand Marshal’s are, Terry Walhood, Ronnie Duckworth and The Rockaway Roastery. This is also the first time a business has been chosen as Grand Marshal in Rockaway Beach.
