This year, the Arkansas Rice Festival is pleased to announce that Tia Booth will be the Grand Marshall. Tia was a contestant on Season 22 of ABC's "The Bachelor." She used her southern charm to make it all the way to the Hometown Visit with Arie Luyendyke Jr. When Tia isn't enjoying her time on screen, she is a Physical Therapist in Little Rock. Tia is excited to be part of the Arkansas Rice Festival and looks forward to spending time with family and friends in Weiner, AR.
