Kottkamp to be grand marshal for Edison Festival of Light
Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp has been confirmed as the Grand Marshal for the 71st Grand Parade of Light.

The Grand Parade of Light is a two-hour extravaganza featuring national and local marching bands, unique floats and giant balloons, local government and law enforcement officials and more. The parade, which has gained recognition as the largest night parade in the south east, brings the entire community out in celebration of the life and achievements of winter resident, Thomas Edison.
