The parade will take place Saturday, December 4 at 6 p.m. in Downtown Topeka, starting at 5th and Kansas. The deadline for nominations is Friday, November 12.

“The grand marshal and junior grand marshal play a central role in the parade,” said Stephanie Norwood, director of events. “They’ll preside over the entire event, ride on a float and help promote the importance of this event in the community. It’s a great honor.”
