The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Timken Grand Parade will be held this Saturday, Aug. 7, beginning at 8 a.m. The first grand parade was held in 1963, and it has become one of the largest of the 18 events celebrating the induction of the newest Class of Enshrinees into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
This year’s celebration will include many returning Hall of Famers, who will ride in the parade, along with the 2010 Class of Enshrinees including Russ Grimm, Rickey Jackson, Dick LeBeau, Floyd Little, John Randle, Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith. Parade viewers will be treated to the sights of 12 giant helium balloons, 21 marching and military bands, 11 floats and 23 specialty units, as well as antique vehicles, animal units and much more.
We have several guests staying at our Ohio bed and breakfast, Whispering Pines, attending this year’s events. The Inn is located about 30 minutes from all the activities. The weather is cooperating so this weekend should be a lot of fun.
I’ll look forward to seeing you soon,
