2024 Grinnell on the Fourth Parade Grand Marshal


We're thrilled to announce Peggy Elliott and Martha Pinder as the 2024 Fourth of July Parade Grand Marshals. Many incredible and worthy nominations were received again this year, and we are excited to recognize Peggy and Martha for their tireless commitment to communicate, inform and highlight area happenings. 

Each year we receive many nominations to serve as the Fourth of July Grand Marshal, and this year was no exception. In a world where communication and accurate reporting are critical, we are thrilled to recognize Peggy and Martha for their commitment to keeping Grinnell and the surrounding area informed.

One nominee shares, “The Grinnell Herald-Register plays a critical role in Grinnell by informing us of important events, telling the stories of our residents, and documenting the history of our community.” The Grinnell Herald Register, owned by members of the Pinder family since 1944, is one of the community’s longest standing businesses. The sisters are no strangers to the community, devoting their lives and livelihood to sharing the community’s important news and information for decades. 

The community is invited to join Peggy and Martha as this year’s Grand Marshals at the Fourth of July parade beginning at 5 PM. Click /index.cfm?nodeID=86743&audienceID=1 to find more details about Grinnell on the Fourth.

The parade is produced by the Grinnell Area Chamber of Commerce and presented by Ahrens Park Foundation in partnership with Grinnell Mutual, Green State Credit Union and Clarity Eyecare and Windsor Manor. Fireworks are managed by the City of Grinnell and paid for by the City’s Hotel/Motel Tax Committee.
