Parade Marshal

In other business Wednesday, 2014 fair president Tim Yoder announced Indiana Superintendent for Public Instruction Glenda Ritz as his pick for marshal of this summer's fair parade.

The parade takes place the Sunday of fair week, winding its way through downtown Goshen en route to the fairgrounds.

Ritz, a Democrat, defeated GOP incumbent Tony Bennett for the education superintendent post in 2012.

Ritz had been an educator since 1978 until her election in 2012. Before starting as the state’s Superintendent, Ritz was the library media specialist at Crooked Creek Elementary School in Indianapolis.

Information about the performers for the 2014 Elkhart County 4-H Fair concert series was provided by fair staff.
