The Fiesta Association, the all-volunteer group that organizes the Swallows Day Parade and the Fiesta de las Golondrinas season, has announced Jim Curwood as the grand marshal for next year’s parade.
Curwood, known around town as “Bicycle Jim” and for donning a bee costume in humorous commercials on local television, has owned and operated Buy My Bikes for more than 30 years. Curwood is also noted for his work in the community, including donating bikes to local causes.
The Fiesta Association also announced the theme for next year’s parade, “New Trails West,” and its colors, black, gun metal grey and red. The 56th Swallows Day Parade is scheduled to take place March 22. The association is hosting a barbecue on Sunday, October 20, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at Zoomars Petting Zoo, 31791 Los Rios Street.
