Winners some, winners all as parade delights thousands



The Washington Christmas Parade of Lights was deemed a success by onlookers of every age, who braved the biting cold to watch the menagerie of hand-crafted floats, big rigs, and neighboring faces march through town in celebration of the season. The winding parade strand helped to usher in the spirit of Christmas as it created a cheerful and exciting atmosphere for the many spectators lined up along the streets. This year’s float winners were also excited, as the Washington Dance Academy (above) took first place in the category of Industry, Business, and Professional, with the Chamber of Commerce taking second place. W-WPS (below) won first place in the category of Schools and Youth Groups, while the local boy scout troop took second, and First Baptist Church received the “Mayor’s Trophy” in the category of Non-Profits. Following were New Life Baptist Church and Springfield Baptist Church.
