Tell Us Why Your Dad Should Be ‘Dad of the Year’ and He Could Be Grand Marshal in Union Gap’s Parade

You know all those ties your dad has received for Father’s Day over the years? Well, this might be an occasion for him to actually WEAR one of them.

The city of Union Gap and Prestige Motors are looking for a grand marshal for this year’s Old Town Father’s Day Parade — and they’re counting on you to help them decide whose dad will get to ride in the fancy car and wave to everybody.

There is, however, a little writing assignment.

Send in an essay (no more than 500 words) that explains why your old man should be “Dad of the Year” by  5 p.m. June 2. If your essay is selected as the winner, your dad can put on one of those ties and head into town for one of the greatest weekends of his life.

Not only will he be the guest of honor for the June 17 parade, he’ll get to shoot a cannon in the battle of his choice during Union Gap’s annual Civil War re-enactment. (Talk about choosing your battles!)

He’ll also get a free round of golf at Apple Tree, a $50 gift card to  Old Town Station and a “Visit Union Gap” gift basket full of local goodies.

Use the form below to enter — or drop your essay off directly at Union Gap’s City Hall at 107 W. Ahtanum Road or email it to

So get to writing … and make sure your pop remembers how to tie a necktie!
