Adelante San Luis sponsored the float contest of the Santa Ana 2019 Parade. Three $300 prizes were given as an incentive for townspeople and other Costilla County residents to enter more floats into the parade with the goal of providing a more memorable parade experience for the viewing public.

Judges were picked out of the crowd randomly and were provided a score sheet. Five different judges on both Saturday and Sunday.  Prizes were awarded on Sunday afternoon in the Convent Commons shortly before the Church gave out the Raffle prizes.

The winners were: Claudio's Kitchen for Originality, Costilla County Clerk and Recorder for Construction Quality, and Dream Styles for Overall Appearance.

Adelante San Luis would like to thank everyone for participating and ask others to start thinking about float and festival ideas for next year.   Please pass on those ideas to the Town Trustees, Mayor, or Town Manager.
