Oktoberfest at the Hope Grange, as I’m sure you are aware, was on Saturday. As the judge of the costume contest, it fell to me to decide just who was the grand prize-winner. This wasn’t easy, as there was quite the crop this year. The costumes included a family of Mother Goose characters (including Little Miss Muffet), Jasmine, Red Riding Hood, a rockin’ skeleton, and a Medieval hipster. Below, you will find a picture of the winner. Georgie Green is dressed as Rapunzel, and aren’t her shoes just perfect? They made the choice for me.
