The baby contest will have categories for 0 to 3 months, 4 to 6 months, 7 to 12 months, 13 to 24 months, 25 to 36 months and 37 to 48 months. Girls and boys will be judged separately. This year’s contest also will feature an overall best patriotic class and a twins class.

The entry cost is $5 per child. Ribbons will be awarded for first and second places in each class.

The Little Miss and Mister Red, White and Blue contest will be for children ages 5 to 7. Children will be judged on patriotic dress and their ability to answer a simple question chosen at random.
