The contingent of grand marshals will be led by parade founder and former Ventura Mayor and Councilman Jim Monahan, who was previously grand marshal in 2008.

The other returning grand marshals will be: the McGrath family, who led the 1997 parade honoring all descendants of Ventura County Irish pioneers; the Elks Lodge No. 1430, which sponsors the parade each year (2004); the E.J. Harrison & Sons family, who in 2007 honored trash/recycling company matriarch Myra Harrison and, appropriately, the theme “Go Green”; the Women of Jewelia, a philanthropic group formed around a shared diamond necklace (2009); Richard Rush, former president of California State University, Channel Islands, and a community activist (2014); 150 years of Ventura descendent families, which when they led the parade in 2016 included the Foster, Olivas, Harrison and Moraga clans; Mary Osborne, Ventura’s own world-famous surfing champion (2017); and local first responders, honored last year for their heroic work during the Thomas Fire of December 2017.
