Radio Personality Paul Castronovo to Serve as Grand Marshal for 2019 Pioneer Days Parade

The Deerfield Beach Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce that the Grand Marshal for the 2019 Pioneer Days Parade will be Radio Personality, Paul Castronovo. The annual parade will take place on Saturday, February 16, 2019, at 10:00 AM.

 Castronovo has been one of South Florida’s most popular on-air personalities for over three decades, and he attributes what he calls his, “gift of gab” for success in both radio and television. He is best known as a host of the long-running “Paul & Young Ron Show,” and now the “Paul Castronovo Show” on Big 105.9 FM. Castronovo has also worked with the Miami Dolphins Foundation, co-chairing its charity effort, Fins Weekend, and he has served on the Board of Directors for the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.
