The State Parade will be taking place this year on July 20, 2013, and State Parade Chairman Jim Clifford is ecstatic to be taking on a new theme “Transforming North Dakota”. He is even more excited to announce that Minot’s very own, Josh Duhamel will hold the position as the Grand Marshal of the State Parade. “North Dakota is very proud of Josh Duhamel and his accomplishments,” states Clifford, “ He is internationally recognized and a big supporter of our state. It is an honor to have him leading our parade.” Clifford said the parade will continue to be held on Saturday morning, setting off from Broadway and down to Burdick to the Fairgrounds.
Registration forms were sent out in early May and the chairman has reported numerous calls and inquiries from those who would like to be included. To request an entry form contact 701-838-0104 or download a form from www.ndstatefair.com/specialevents.
