Marysville postpones Black Squirrels on Parade preview

By  | 

A tribute for Marysville's mascot has been postponed because the "guest of honor" isn't ready.

Wayne Kruse tells 13 NEWS the sculptor of the 5-foot fiberglass squirrel had medical issues that prevented him from coming to Marysville. Kruse says the sculptor is recuperating and will be fine to kick-off the project in mid- to late-May.

Because of this postponement, the deadline for artists to have their final designs turned in for the project is Friday, May 27.

The Black Squirrels on Parade Preview was scheduled for Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at the Historic Marysville Union Pacific Depot. We'll let you know when a make-up date is set.
