Baldridge Named Parade Marshal


(SALEM, IL) — With the theme “Music through the Ages,” this year’s Little Egypt Festival Parade Grand Marshal is an appropriate choice. Patoka native and Grand Ole Opry performer Drew Baldridge has scheduled time to return home and visit with his hometown friends before taking his spot as Grand marshal for the October 7 festival. Details will follow, but there may be a tent set up for him on the courthouse lawn so Drew can sign autographs, and sell CDs, T-shirts, and other memorabilia. Parade entry forms will be available the first week of August- keep an eye on the Little Egypt Festival Parade Facebook page for further information and upcoming announcements, especially for those interested in participating in the parade.
