St. Patrick Knights of Columbus won first place in the Church float category at the 2008 Adamsville Christmas Parade.
The Knights entered the parade riding on a replica of the Pinta, one of the ships Christopher Columbus used in his journey to the new world. The Pinta was decoarated with lights and garland. Also adoring the float were American, Knights and Prolife flags. The Knights banner served as the mast.
Father Vernon Huguley and 6 other Knights rode on the float throwing candy to the crowds. The parade ended at Minor High School where they had an awards ceremony and fireworks display. The Knights float won 1st place in the Church entry category.
