Crazy Hat Contest

Hat Contest General Info

Welcome, all you creative hat lovers out there. We want to invite you to decorate your most creative hat art ever at the 8th Annual Lighter Side of Christmas Parade Hat Contest. As you may remember, our beloved friend, Mike Williams (with Deb Idleman, below), was the mastermind behind this addition. He always decorated and wore the most elaborate and crazy hats for the Christmas parade. We dedicate the hat contest in his memory.

The judges will be looking for the most innovative and crazy hat design for 2017 to give golden tickets to. Prizes will be awarded to those lucky ticket holders at the Ute Pass Cultural Center after the parade. Can’t wait to see how Woodland Park tops last years CRAZY hats!
