Help Newtown's Happiest Events!

2012 Winner Giavanna then & now


            Babies and young children represent our future.  Eda LeShan said it best - “A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.”  


No other happy event unites us better as a town than the Newtown Labor Day Parade, and this year the $10 entry fee, as well as the bulk of the vote money will go toward funding the Parade, a newly formed 501 C-3, making all checks tax-deductible.  Votes collected at Lobsterfest will go to the Sandy Hook Fire House.  As always, 100% of the money I raise from the Beautiful Baby Contest goes to charity or non-profits.

 Newtown’s Beautiful Baby Photo Contest is a fun, friendly competition.  Post your child's (newborn - 4 yr) photo on the voting booth and have the public vote with dollar bills for the cutest kid.  The child whose photo raises the most amount of money for charity rides in the Parade in a chauffeur-driven convertible provided by Mercedes of Danbury as the "Beautiful Baby Winner".  All contestants are invited to march in the Parade with their families as the “Beautiful Baby Contestants”.

To enter a contestant, send a $10 check made payable to "Newtown Labor Day Parade" and a non-returnable 4" x4" (cut a 4”x6") photo with the baby's name, contact phone # & email address (if available) to Baby Contest; C/O Lois Barber;  33 Zoar Rd; Sandy Hook, CT 06482

Contest runs in June for 2 weeks.  Will kick off at Lobsterfest and move onto Stop & Shop Supermarket, Newtown.  Enter Now!  Space limited to first 56 contestants.
