The Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce has announced the winners of the annual Fourth of July parade awards.
Judges unanimously bestowed the Patriotic Spirit Award to the VFW.
The award for best embodiment of the theme went to the Alaska Marine Highway for its representation of the ferry Fairweather. The theme this year was H2O, an acronym for Highway to Our Future.
The Spirit of Ketchikan Award for the best expression of overall talent went to the kids from Studio Max.
There were several honorable mentions for that last category. They were musher Angie Taggart, the Gymnastics Club, the Class of 2014 and the Rainforest Rollergirls.
