Everything has to be a contest. Taste testing, costume parades, spelling, cleanliness.
On the weekend it was announced that I would be the presiding judge (who was forced to announce 1 winner only, like a real contest you know) for a costume parade.
The compromise was creating three prize categories. 1st category: best super hero costume (won handily by Spiderman magician man)
2nd category: Royalty (won by the girl dressed up to the nines)
Best Overall: (awarded the candelabra trophy)
Overall winner? Girl dressed up
