Willow Shields, who starred as Primrose Everdeen in The Hunger Games, will be the grand marshal of this year’s Fiesta Flambeau Parade which will be held on April 28th in San Antonio, Texas. The Flambeau Parade has been called America’s largest illuminated night parade.
Willow thanked the Fiesta Flambeau Parade Association and city and county leaders for the invitation to be parade marshal in a statement that was flashed on the Palladium’s IMAX screen.
“Hey, San Antonio. I wish I could be there today to greet you and thank you in person. Unfortunately, I am traveling with our ‘Hunger Games’ press tour and I am literally on a plane (right now),” she said in the statement. “I promise I will study up on what a grand marshal does besides a perfect parade wave. … I am looking forward to seeing you all.”
Parade organizers were thrilled that the starlet accepted their offer to helm the parade with the “Saturday Night at the Movies” theme. Floats will be adorned with decorations featuring favorite flicks and bands will perform movie soundtracks.
