Parade Marshal

Each year, the Morton Chamber of Commerce selects an indidivual to honor as our Pumpkin Festival Parade Marshal.  Morton citizens are encouraged to nominate individuals for this honor in the spring based on the following criteria:

• Resident of Morton, either now or in past
• Been of service to the community or otherwise brought distinguished credit to Morton
• Need not necessarily be a business person or a Chamber member
• Committee may select an Honorary Parade Marshal when appropriate

The Parade Marshal is announced to the public in August and then joins us as an honored guest at the Opening Ceremony for the Morton Pumpkin Festival and the Pumpkin Festival Parade.

Nominate someone today for Parade for the 2013 Pumpkin Festival Parade on September 14th.
