2021 Grand Marshals: Martin & Julie Haarr

Martin & Julie Haarr are honored and humbled to be chosen as the Grand Marshals for Troy Days 2021.

Martin is a long-time Troy resident having lived here since 1977 with his wife, Julie. They have been married for 44 years. Martin grew up in Norway, Montana, and Idaho and settled in Troy after graduating from the University of Idaho. He traveled back to Norway to develop his family’s farm from 1979-1985 and returned to start his business, Haarr Excavation. They agreed that Troy was the perfect place to raise a family. Martin and Julie have four children; Lisa Hazeltine, Darrel Haarr, Dave Haarr, and Casey Haarr.

Martin loves living and working in Troy and is happy to be a part of such a wonderful community. Over the years, he has specialized in forest service work and stream restoration, retaining walls, community projects, and providing home and business excavation work.

These days, you can still find Martin happily digging in his rock pit in his excavator or driving down the road with a load of gravel with a smile on his face. When he takes a rare day off from work he enjoys spending time with his family, including his eight grandchildren. He and Julie also enjoy traveling. Martin wishes to say “Tusen Takk” (A thousand thanks in Norwegian) to the community for their continued support of his business and the honor of being named grand marshal.


Saturday's events kick off with the Lions Club pancake and sausage breakfast at 6AM at the City Park followed by numerous events throughout the day including a parade, continuous live music, buffalo burgers for lunch, kids games, Show & Shine, cornhole tournament, various raffles and so much more.

Be sure to also stick around in the evening for a fun night of street dancing right on Main Street. Live music entertainment will be performed by Lewiston band "Attention Deficit", and if you get hungry be sure to enjoy a bite from one of our local restaurants or try out one of our on-site food trucks.
