KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — The theme of this year's Whitefish Winter Carnival is "Viva Las Vegas." And organizers say they have the definitive grand marshal for this year's parade — Wayne Newton.

Carnival board chairman Paul Johannsen says Newton's wife confirmed via email that the man known as Mr. Las Vegas would be honored to lead the parade through downtown Whitefish on Feb. 8.

Johannsen says organizers were able to contact Newton through a friend of his wife's.
