Local artist and rising Nashville star, Colby Dee will serve as this year’s Grand Marshal for the parade and will be featured on the very first unit. As incentive to enhance the competition for those vying for “Best in Show” for each category, participants have been encouraged to use their imagination with theme-related decoration, creativity and originality. Last year’s “Grand Marshal Award Winners,” judged by the Chamber’s Parade Committee, was West Plumbing. They will follow this year’s Grand Marshal in the parade line-up. The parade units will be judged by the Warner Robins Civitan Club.
