July 15th, 2019 – The Decatur Celebration has announced the Grand Marshall for this year’s Razzle Dazzle Good Times Parade, Fred Puglia. Longtime Celebration director and founder of the Decatur Celebration, brought the Decatur Celebration idea to then CIty Mayor Gary Anderson in 1986, who loved the idea and felt it’s what the city needed to boost morale. A committee was formed after approval from the City Council, which was made up of Puglia, Mayor Anderson, Jim Masey and Orv Graham and are recognized as the “founding fathers” of the Celebration. Masey and Graham will join Puglia in the parade. Puglia ran the Decatur Celebration for 25 years until retiring in 2010. The Razzle Dazzle Good Time Parade takes place on Saturday, August 3rd at 10am in downtown Decatur. Wristbands will be required to view the parade from inside the gates, but outside the gates is free to attend.
