The Locker Family of Ferndale has been selected as the grand marshall of this year’s Ski to Sea Blossom Time Parade, according to an announcement from the Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The Locker family is probably best known for one particular member, Jake Locker, the quarterback for the NFL’s Tennessee Titans. Three generations of the Locker family will be present at the Grand Parade, but the Chamber reports that Jake will likely not be able to attend.
The selection committee picked the Locker family, in part due to its members’ involvement, both through their time and their resources, in youth sports activities in Whatcom County, according to the Chamber.
The Ski to Sea Blossom Time Grand Parade will take place from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 25. The parade route starts at the intersection of Cornwall Avenue and Alabama Street, and ends at York Street and State Street.
Registration is now open for the Grand Parade, the Junior Ski to Sea Parade and the Junior Ski to Sea Race. More information is on the Chamber’s website at
