The following are the winners of the parade competition categories.

For cars, in first place was Tyler Lounsberry with his 1954 Chevy; second place went to Terry Lounsberry with a 1970 Monte Carlo

The North East Wyoming Walleye Association (NEWWA) sponsored the fish fry, which helps pay for many of the community programs for youths on the lake, enjoyed a large crowd who were hungry and ready to play and bid at the auction after the parade. The lunch was a casual affair spotted with laughter and children, feeding more than 200 guests.
