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 10th Annual Lighter Side of Christmas Crazy Hat Contest. Our beloved friend, Mike Williams, was the mastermind behind this addition. He always decorated and wore the most elaborate and crazy hats for the Christmas parade. We dedicate the Crazy Hat Contest in Mike’s memory.
All those who chose to participate in the contest arrive at the Ute Pass Cultural Center immediately following the LSOC Parade. Tracie Bennitt, the MC of the contest, will ask all those with crazy hats to come to the front of the stage. The audience will determine the winners. There will be 10 prizes handed out by Jerry and Vicki Good, owners of Williams Log Furniture and sponsors of the contest.
Prizes presented at UPCC Tree Lighting after the Parade:
- 1st place – $100 Gift Certificate From Williams Furniture
- 2nd place – $75 Gift Certificate from Williams Furniture
- 3rd place – Free Pizza from Papa Murphy’s Pizza
- 4th-10th – Variety of other gift certificates
