The 2014 parade was filled with scout troops creating some stiff competition, but the handmade float created by 2nd grade Brownies at Findley Oaks Elementary School topped the list winning in the "Best Scout" category. Their float was themed "Little Brownie Elfers."

Autrey Mill Nature Preserve & Heritage Center won for "Best Civic." The non-profit's float featured a classic Santa's sleigh set within a nature scene of animals represented of an 1800s Georgian homestead.

And winning in the "Best Subdivision" was Medlock Bridge. The neighborhood's jungle-theme float featured lions, monkeys, tigers and other jungle animals. Nearly 100 residents worked on their float and costumes for months.
