Bob & Lynn Ripley - Grand Marshal of the 31st Daffodil Festival Parade

The Ripleys were selected as this year's Grand Marshal for their outstanding stewardship of Werowocomoco, and their personal commitment and sacrifice to preserve history.  This year's Festival theme is "Hometown Roots, Worldwide Blooms", honoring the life and journey of Pocahontas.  Selecting the Ripleys as Grant Marshal for the 31st Annual Daffodil Festival was a natural fit and we are so pleased to have them join in this celebration!
