Descendants of Historic Ventura Families to
Grand Marshals of 28th St. Patrick’s
Day Parade on March 12

Members of some of Ventura’s historic families will serve as Grand Marshals when the annual Ventura County St. Patrick’s Day Parade marches down Main Street for the 28th time in downtown Ventura on Saturday, March 12.

The theme of this year’s parade, which begins in front of Mission San Buenaventura at 10 a.m., is “Celebrating 150 Years of Ventura’s History.” The city was incorporated on April 2, 1866.

Grand Marshals will be:

  • Julie Tumamait-Stenslie, a ¬†Chumash Elder representing the native people of the area;
  • Members of the E.J. Harrison family, descendants of Lt. Juan Moraga, a member of the DeAnza party, which founded the San Buenaventura Mission in 1782;
  • Descendants of Don Raymundo Olivas, who built Ventura County's only remaining Monterey-style adobe home from the Rancho era between 1847-49;
  • Descendants of the Smith-Hobson & Petit families. William Dewey Hobson is called “The Father of Ventura County” for his efforts to form the county in 1873.
  • Descendants of E.P. Foster, who donated funds in 1921 for a building that originally housed both the public library and Ventura City Hall; and the Ventura County Fairgrounds
