This year’s grand marshals are set to be honored throughout the day and will be made up of a trio with deep ties to the Town of Huntington.
World Boxing Organization junior welterweight champion from Greenlawn, Chris Algieri; former Huntington Republican chairman, Anthony “Tony” Mastroianni; and longtime president of the Whitman Village Cooperative Board, Thomas Jerideau will participate in the day’s events which include a fair promising appearances from local artists, booths with crafts and services, food, games and much more.
