Judging for this year’s Parade was provided by the Civitan Club of Warner Robins. The judging criteria were based on originality, costuming, adherence to the parade theme and overall appearance. Winners may retrieve their trophies from the Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce. This year’s “Grand Marshal Award” winner, judged by the Chamber’s Parade Committee, was awarded for the second year in a row to West Plumbing for their portrayal of “Nine Pipers Piping.”
Presented by American Chiropractic Specialists, this year’s parade was themed, “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Other parade sponsors included Dress You Up Formals, Golden Key Realty and Robins Federal Credit Union. Local artist and Nashville rising star, Colby Dee served as this year’s Grand Marshal and was featured on the very first float. As incentive to enhance the competition for those vying for “Best in Show” for each category, participants had been encouraged to use their imagination with theme-related decoration, creativity, originality and of course…music!
