MANHATTAN, IL - The Manhattan Chamber of Commerce has announced the float winners from Monday's annual Labor Day Parade. The chamber congratulated all 30 or so entries who participated in this year's event, including the Lincoln-Way Marching Band that served as the Grand Marshal.
The top business floats were the First Bank of Manhattan (1st), Iron Workers Local 444 (2nd) and Manhattan Family Chiropractic (3rd).
The best non-profit floats, according to the three judges, were the Manhattan Patriots Football and Cheer (1st) and a three-way tie for second: LWAF JROTC, a 1929 Model A car owned by Lloyd and Myrla Johnson and a 1968 Camaro owned by Brian Strong.
Judging the floats were three members of the Lions Club: Bob Adams and Priscilla and George Huffman.
"We appreciate everyone who came out to watch the parade and support all participants who worked so hard on their entries for the parade," the chamber wrote in a statement on social media.
