With a pumpkin hat on his head, sitting amongst fruits and vegetables, four-month-old William Valentine, Jr., was seated in the wheelbarrow filled with hay that his father pushed down the runway at the Ag Expo's Baby Contest and Miniature Parade on Monday evening.
His mother, Katrina, said she and her husband picked the fruits and vegetables theme because they are a favorite of William's.
"He just loves them," she said.
William, who is one of six siblings in his family, was the first prize winner in the non-walking part of the contest, which featured infants in the birth to 14 months age group.
Before the contest, William Valentine, the father, said it was a spur of the moment idea to bring his son out and join in the contest and it was purely for the fun of it.
