The West Side Nut Club has announced the Grand Marshall of the 97th Fall Festival parade will be Indiana basketball standout and Tri-State native, Jackie Young!

Miss Young graduated from Princeton High School in 2016 after an amazing high school career which included being named the 2016 Indiana Miss Basketball. Young continues to display her basketball skills at Notre Dame, and played a major part in the Lady Fighting Irish winning the 2017 NCAA National Championship.

We can't wait to see Jackie leading the way down Franklin Street as the Grand Marshall of the Fall Festival parade on Saturday, October 6th. The parade wraps up the week-long festival featuring food, rides, games, entertainment and catching up with old friends, and it all happens October 1st-6th.
