2013 Frontier Days Parade Marshals
Pam and Dallas at Waitsburg
Pam & Dallas Thompson
We are proud to have Pam and Dallas Thompson represent us as our
2013 Co-Parade Marshals.
Pam Talbot Thompson has a long history with the Fairgrounds and the Fair. She began attending and participating in the Fair as a child. Her family has strong Rodeo ties, so Pam began competing in Barrel Racing at the Fair at a very young age. She was a member of the Valley Girls Barrel Racing Association and continues with her love of horses and Barrel Racing. With Pam’s outgoing personality it was no surprise when she was chosen as a Cheerleader for the Walla Walla Blue Devils. Pam was also chosen Queen of the Walla Walla Fair in 1968. After graduating from college Pam began her teaching career. She taught PE at Pioneer Junior High until her retirement.
Dallas on the other hand was a Walla Walla import. He was born and raised in Idaho. Dallas practiced Veterinary Medicine at the Walla Walla Associated Vet Clinic. He was very popular among his animal patients as well as their owners. Dallas was on the Fairboard for 9 years and is currently on the Frontier Days Foundation Board.
Pam and Dallas married in 1983 and today they are both retired to a life of farming and cattle. They live in Touchet and both love the outdoors. Pam is an avid hunter and Dallas her loyal sidekick. Pam and Dallas love to entertain and have held numerous Fair parties for auctions and other benefits plus hosted evening gatherings for the Board and Stall. If you have ever been fortunate enough to attend one of their parties, you won’t forget it.
