• Parade: Grand Marshal & Community Ambassadors



  • The Northeast Minneapolis community is full of good hearted and civically involved residents and business people who contribute to our quality of life. Take a moment and nominate a deserving person for the honor of Grand Marshal or one of our Community Ambassadors for the 89th Celebrate Northeast Parade.

    Nominees for Grand Marshal should possess a number of qualities to be considered a candidate:

    • A long standing presence in the Northeast Community
    • Highly visible contributions to the community that have had a lasting impact
    • Involvement in various aspects of the community, i.e.: business, volunteering, faith communities and social service organizations


    Individuals can also be nominated in one of the following Community Ambassador categories and should possess similar qualities as the Grand Marshal:

    • Youth
    • Senior
    • Volunteer
    • Business Person
    • Eastside Guardian Award


    The members of the volunteer parade committee will review all of the nominations and select a winner early June. Winners will be notified shortly thereafter. The Grand Marshal and Community Ambassadors will be asked to submit a short biography and a photo for publication on the Celebrate Northeast Parade website and will appear in the pre-parade edition of the Northeaster. Winners will also be asked to ride along the parade route.
