And the win­ners are…

Rappahannock News - - NEWS - — John Mc­Caslin

Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton Christ­mas Pa­rade judges had a par­tic­u­larly dif­fi­cult time choos­ing the best of the par­tic­i­pants this year, ac­cord­ing to pa­rade or­ga­nizer Judy DeSarno.

“Rap­pa­han­nock­ians out­did them­selves with cre­ativ­ity and enor­mous tal­ent and en­thu­si­asm,” DeSarno ob­serves. “You’ll note some new cat­e­gories — the judges’ pre­rog­a­tive — be­cause it was just a fab­u­lous lineup.”

With­out fur­ther ado, the win­ners are:

Best Float: [email protected]

Best Theme: Girl Scouts

Best An­i­mals: Small­est: Mini Whin­nies and Bitty Bray­ers; Largest: Rose Hill (Note: the cat­tle didn’t budge be­yond the re­view­ing stand)

Best Cos­tume: 4-H

Best Band: Rap­pa­han­nock County High School Grace’s Fa­vorite: Ge­orge and Martha Wash­ing­ton (Ge­orge liked the pa­rade so much last year that he and Martha re­tuned) Best An­i­mal Trick: Wag­ging Hearts Ther­apy Dogs Best Singing Float: Wash­ing­ton Bap­tist Drama

Group Best Roller Skates: Hearthstone School Most Cre­ative: Hair Gallery

Best Na­tiv­ity: Knights of Colum­bus-St. Peter’s Church

Fi­nally, hats off to Judy DeSarno and the count­less other vol­un­teers — park­ing at­ten­dants to Santa’s elves — who brought this spec­tac­u­lar pa­rade to the Rap­pa­han­nock County Seat.
