There was great participation and enthusiasm from all entries in our parade!  The judges were very impressed and it made it extremely hard to pick any clear winners.  The two judges eventually decided on the top two:

First Place  – The Meier Family – Skol The Vikings.  The replication of a Viking ship, the Viking horns and the portrayal by the participants was excellent.

Second Place – The Dexter Family –  Happy 4th of July – The theme was most enthusiastically portrayed and the decorations were superb.

Third Place –  All participants deserve awards for making this 4th of July a very fun and memorable day for all lake residents.  Thanks to all!
