“Old Fash­ioned Christ­mas” Pa­rade through hol­i­day adorned Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton fea­tured all that Rap­pa­han­nock County has to of­fer, plus as pa­rade-go­ers’ wit­nessed this year a smidgen of in­ter­na­tional fla­vor as the Mid­dle Street Gallery en­try ( 1 ) blared the Span­ish mil­i­tary march Paso Doble (the mu­sic one hears at bull­fights). Seen here is Ron Good­man (Pablo Pi­casso) and his lovely wife Ros­abel Good­man-Ever­ard (Frida Kahlo, the Mex­i­can artist), while be­neath the cow­boy hat out­side is Phyl­lis Northup (Ge­or­gia O’Ke­effe).

Wash­ing­ton Town Coun­cil mem­bers Kather­ine Weld “Kat” Leggett and Patrick O’Con­nell ( 2 ) ride in 1950 Hud­son Hor­net-style along the pa­rade route; while Rapp at Home ( 3 ) was awarded “Best Float.”

Nine-month-old At­las Sut­ten ( 4 ), ab­sorb­ing his first-ever Christ­mas ex­trav­a­ganza, isn’t quite sure what to make of the elf out­fit worn by Busi­nesses of Rap­pa­han­nock Pres­i­dent Theresa Wood ( 5 ).

An at­ten­tive shep­herd was keep­ing his eye on a lit­tle lamb ( 6 ) while rid­ing aboard the “Best Na­tiv­ity” crowned float, spon­sored by St. Peter’s Catholic Church and the Knights of Colum­bus.

County res­i­dent Page Glen­nie ( 7 ) pre­pares to lead his red-scarfed llama onto the more crowded Main Street cor­ri­dor of the pa­rade route; while other four-legged marchers in­cluded a minia­ture pony ( 8 ) and antlered if not en­er­vated yel­low Labrador Re­triever ( 9 ) be­ing pulled in a red wagon.

Sev­eral hun­dred chil­dren and their par­ents lined up to present wish lists to Santa and Mrs. Claus ( 10 ); while at the ar­ti­san-filled Town Hall, where Meaghan Fuller ( 11 ) dis­played her fan­tasy Strike Daekins De­signs, the por­trait of Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton ( 12 ) was made more merry for the oc­ca­sion.

Fi­nally, never un­der­es­ti­mate ( 13 ) the power of red lip­stick and high heels.
