Miss America Cara Mund will be the grand marshal of the 2018 North Dakota State Fair Parade in Minot. The parade is scheduled for Saturday, July 21.

“We are ecstatic to have Miss America serve as grand marshal of the 2018 parade,” said Jim Clifford, chairman of the parade committee Tuesday.

Mund, of Bismarck, was crowned Miss North Dakota in June and then crowned Miss America 2018 in Atlantic City, N.J., in September. It is the first time a contestant from North Dakota has won the Miss America title.

The North Dakota State Fair Parade is the largest parade in North Dakota.

More details about the parade will be released later.
