Rain storms didn’t stop all of the Moonlight Madness fun

LITTLE MISS AND MR. RED BUD–Crowned as the new Little Miss and Mr. Red Bud during the Red Bud Chamber of Commerce’s annual Moonlight Madness last Saturday were Ava Deterding and Mason Mehring. Ava is the daughter of Alex and Jennifer Deterding. She attends Red Bud Elementary School. Mason is the son of Mathew and Michelle Mehring. He attends St. John the Baptist Catholic School.

Despite an extremely rainy start to the day, the Red Bud Chamber of Commerce’s annual Moonlight Madness still took place last Saturday and drew quite a crowd to downtown Red Bud.

The morning events including the car show and kids’ bicycle parade were canceled due to the storm. But eventually the sun came out and the rest of the scheduled events took place.

Crowned as the new Little Miss and Mr. Red Bud were Ava Deterding and Mason Mehring. Other candidates this year were: Serenity Hesse, Payton Liefer, Kaylie Mikel and Maggie Roy. Together, the candidates raised a total of $2,915.08 for local charities.
