Yogi Ferrell Will Lead Madison Regatta Parade
By Mike Perleberg
(Madison, Ind.) – A former Indiana University basketball fan favorite will be the grand marshal of the 2017 Madison Regatta Parade.
Former IU star – and current point guard for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks – Yogi Ferrell will lead the Regatta parade on Friday, June 30. He’ll also tour the powerboat pits from 2:30 until 4:00 p.m. before he joins the parade.
Ferrell is the third IU player to serve as the Regatta Parade Grand Marshal, following A.J. Ratliff in 2005 and Jared Jeffries in 2000.
A week of festivities starting on Sunday, June 25 will lead up to the H1 Unlimited and GPW racing on the Ohio River in Madison on Saturday and Sunday, July 1 and 2.
