Actor Erik Estrada will be grand marshal for the 2018 Doo Dah Parade April 14 in Ocean City and return that night to serve as master of ceremonies for the Mr. Mature America Pageant.

Estrada first captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide during his six-year run as highway patrol officer Frank Poncherello in the TV series "CHiPs." He has also appeared in numerous other television and movie roles, including the new "Armed and Famous" reality series on CBS.

"His talent and charm will be a perfect fit for Ocean City’s pageant, which mixes self-deprecating humor with nostalgia and talent in a tribute to men ages 55 and older," Ocean City public information officer Doug Bergen said in a press release.
