Charles Lancaster Sr. has been part of every PIGasus Parade, providing commentary and introducing parade participants as they pass the Main Street stage.
This year, Lancaster, 78, will be seeing the parade from a different point of view — as the grand marshal.
"This will be a real treat for me," Lancaster said.
When Ham Days was still in its infancy, Lancaster was invited to serve as the master of ceremonies for the parade. It's something he's done ever since.
