The Bold and Beau­ti­ful Red Hat­ters of Cedar­town trav­eled through the decades with cos­tumes and dances that made for solid en­ter­tain­ment and even bet­ter com­pe­ti­tion.

Judged on ev­ery­thing from move­ments to at­tire, the hat­ters per­formed fa­mous dances from the later 1800’s and early 1900’s while spec­ta­tors dined at the Cedar­town High PCCCA cam­pus.

While many prizes and ac­co­lades were given out through the night, it was duo Lisa and An­thony God­frey that ul­ti­mately seized first place dur­ing the Septem­ber 16 event.

“As far as their cos­tumes are con­cerned, I look at how they dress for that par­tic­u­lar era,” guest judge Gary Martin said while ex­plain­ing what makes a qual­ity con­tes­tant. “And of course their per­for­mance and how they han­dle them­selves on the dance floor.”

At $15 per ticket, each of the ap­prox­i­mately 100 guests con­trib­uted to the Hat­ters’ goals of putting money into lo­cal fos­ter fam­ily pro­grams and the can­cer so­ci­ety.

“It’s kind of like a fam­ily af­fair,” Martin said. “There is a lot of mem­bers of this or­ga­ni­za­tion, and if you look around, you’ve got rel­a­tives in here -- they just cover the place. They want to see mom and pop and grandma and grandpa do real good on the dance floor. It’s a great or­ga­ni­za­tion, and great, hon­est, clean fun.”

Some of the night’s more pop­u­lar dances and songs in­cluded Elvis’ Jail­house Rock and Chordettes’ Lol­lipop.

Spec­ta­tors could of­ten be seen on the dance floor, and some took it a step fur­ther by dress­ing in cos­tumes from older decades.
