32nd annual Blade Holiday Parade is Nov. 16

TOLEDO: The 32nd annual Blade Holiday Parade steps off at 10 a.m., Saturday, November 16, 2019. There will be more than 90 units, including marching bands, color guards, giant balloons, clowns, mascots, dance teams, and a visit from Santa Claus.

For the first time, The Blade is partnering with La-Z-Boy Galleries for a chance to watch the parade in style. One lucky winner of the Best Seat in the House contest will be able to sit with up to five guests in a custom La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries’ outdoor VIP living room. Contestants must be 18 years of age to be eligible and can submit entries at bladeparade.toledoblade.com. The contest ends at midnight on November 11. The winner will be notified on November 12.

Former NFL punter Brandon Fields and his wife, Katie, will be the grand marshals. Fields, a St. John’s Jesuit High School graduate, was named to All-America teams in 2004 during his sophomore year at Michigan State University when he led the nation in punting average. He played nine seasons in the NFL — eight with the Miami Dolphins (2007-14) and a brief stint with the New Orleans Saints (2015).

While in Miami, the couple founded the Brandon and Katie Fields Youth Fitness Fund to encourage physical activity. Katie is a Notre Dame Academy and Bowling Green State University graduate who received a doctorate in chiropractic while living in Florida. Brandon and Katie are currently part owners of Inside the Five Brewing Co. in Sylvania. They live in Sylvania with their three children — Skyler (5), Trace (3), and Nora (2).

Before the parade, the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Relay, 5K and Family Fun Run will take place. It begins at The Blade parking lot at 8:30 a.m. (Family Fun Run at 9:15 a.m.).
