Rather than award cash prizes, donations are made on the prize winners’ behalf to a charitable organization. Additionally, to encourage further community spirit, houses along the route compete for a ‘best dressed’ house award, judged on lighting and festive displays. All “prize” donations are made to a local charity of the committee’s choice.
Prizes are awarded in the following categories:
- Best Float - Corporate (1st and 2nd place)
- Best Float - Non-Profit (1st and 2nd place)
- Best Decorated House (on the parade route)
