Our 2022 4th of July Parade Grand Marshal is Olympic Athlete Carly Margulies!
Carly was born and raised in Mammoth and had gone through seven knee surgeries by the time she made it to the Olympics. Her persistence and dedication to her sport make her a true Hometown Hero. Catch her at the beginning of the parade as she ushers in our 2022 floats.
