Salmon Days Festival organizers tapped cyclist Jennie Reed, a silver medalist at the 2012 Summer Olympics and Issaquah High School alumna, to serve as grand marshal in the celebration’s Grande Parade.

Reed, a 1996 Issaquah High graduate, won a silver medal in women’s team pursuit, a cycling event, last month at the London Olympics.

Salmon Days returns to downtown Issaquah for a 43rd outing Oct. 6-7. The festival opens at 10 a.m. Oct. 6 as the Grande Parade starts inching through the business district.

Reed and the U.S. team of Sarah Hammer, Dotsie Bausch and Lauren Tamayo finished in 3 minutes, 19.727 seconds for silver. Great Britain earned the gold in the event and Canada claimed the bronze.
