JOHN DAY - The public can cast their votes for the 2010 Grant County Fair Grand Marshal and fair theme.

Voting will be during the Festival of Holiday Magic's Evening Gala, set for Friday, Dec. 11 at the Fairgrounds Pavilion.

The grand marshal nominees are:

? Jack & Katie Johns

? Tom Campbell

? Carol Ricco Rudishauser

The themes proposed are:
