The Grand Parade begins at 10:45 am at the corner of Harbour Pointe Blvd. and Chennault Beach Road and ends at the fire station on the corner of 47th Pl. W. and Harbour Pointe Blvd. (10400 47th Pl. W.).

The Grand Marshal for the 2018 parade is Mukilteo Boys & Girls Club director Chuck Davis.

2018 Mukilteo Citizen of the Year Nhi Pham and 2018 Pioneer of the Year Sharon (Bridget) Waddell Freeman will also be featured in the parade.

2018 Mayor for a Day Kelsey Schaaf, a student at Olympic View Middle School, will also be in the parade and will ride with Mukilteo Mayor Jennifer Gregerson.

There are also bands that perform as well as other groups, businesses, and more.

Awards are given out each year for different categories.

The theme for the 2018 Festival is “Soaring the Sound!”
