The Middletown Heritage Festival Parade kicks off the Festival, with the Frederick County Honor Guard leading the parade down Main Street to Elm Street. With its dance groups, floats, marching bands and a variety of community organizations, the parade is always a highlight of the day.
The Grand Marshal for our 28th annual parade is Kathleen Rudesill. Mrs. Rudesill has great pride in Middletown, having lived in town for more than 40 years. She is active in the Auxilary of the Salvation Army, Frederick Memorial Hospital, AmVets Post 9 and past president and active member of the Middletown Valley Historical Society. She is also a professional story teller and is a mother of two sons and grandmother to five.
