Ascension is naming "All First Responders" as the Grand Marshal of this year's Waukesha Christmas Parade.
This year's parade will be held on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 4 p.m.
Waukesha officials say a banner for the first responders will go directly in front of Fire Chief Steve Howard, Police Chief Dan Thompson, and Mayor Shawn Reilly. The three will represent the first responders. The Grand Marshal is a ceremonial position that leads a parade, according to the U.S. Military Veteran's Parade Association. The City of Waukesha plans to remember the victims of the parade attack with a ceremony next Monday, Nov. 21. It will be held at the Les Paul Performance Center in Cutler Park beginning at 4:39 p.m.
Afterward, Mayor Reilly asks everyone to light their homes and businesses with blue lights as a show of unity and support for the victims.
