Bismarck's very own Miss America Cara Mund was named as the Grand Marshal of the 2018 North Dakota State Fair Parade set for next summer in Minot.

The parade will happen in Minot on July 21, 2018. Details for the parade will be released at a later date

This past September, Mund became the first Miss North Dakota to win the Miss America crown. She also received a homecoming celebration early last month as November 4th was declared 'Miss America 2018 Cara Mund Day' in Bismarck. The 23-year old Bismarck native was greeted by more than 2,000 guests on that day at the Bismarck Event Center.

The 2018 North Dakota State Fair is set to go from July 20th through July 28th.
