Wheeling

WHEELING, W.Va. — (WTRF) Erik Estrada will join two more grand marshals in this year’s Main Street Bank Fantasy in Lights Parade next Friday night.

Estrada along with Kathie Brown from Wheeling Health Right and Reverend Darrell Cummings, who is the pastor at the Bethlehem Apostolic Temple, are part of this year’s grand marshall ensemble.

Estrada says he is really looking forward to the holiday event that is making its 35th annual return.

“It’s going to be a wonderful time, and I am so looking forward to it, and I’m in the Valley again. The Chrisagis brothers are going to be on the float with me. That’s what’s really cool. They’re going to be with me in the parade. They’re going to be waving. I am going to make them do all the waving. I am just going to smile.”
