The results are in, and Lucy Workman and Nolan Reuille have what it takes to be the inaugural winners of the Face of New Haven Canal Days contest!  Lucy is the daughter of Kevin and Julie Workman of New Haven and Nolan is the son of Adam and Bethany Reuille of Indianapolis.

In a photo submitted by Nancy Reuille of New Haven, Lucy and Nolan are captured smiling and ready to enjoy a high flying ride on the ferris wheel at the iconic Canal Days Midway on Broadway.

Reuille, along with the Workman family, live just a stone’s throw from the festivities on Broadway during Canal Days; the two families are neighbors on Main Street in downtown New Haven.  Reuille says her grandson, Nolan, enjoys coming to New Haven to visit in the summer, especially during the Canal Days Festival.

“He tries not to miss it!” Reuille said of Nolan and the Canal Days Festival.

Lucy and Nolan will be featured on the front of the New Haven Canal Day’s Festival Guide for 2013, which is set to be distributed by Fort Wayne Newspapers in late May.  The duo will also receive a pair of all access passes to the Midway and will be invited to participate in this year’s Canal Days Festival parade.

Due to the high volume of great submissions to the Face of the New Haven Canal Days contest, the judges also selected two entries to be recognized as honorable mentions.  Congratulations to Judy Hubbart and Catherine Mackin, both of New Haven, whose entries were chosen as this year’s honorable mention award winners.  Hubbart’s photo from the 2009 Festival Parade features the NHHS Alumni Band.  Mackin’s photo highlights her children, Michael and Jenna Mackin, as they ride on the Fire Department’s classic Studebaker in the 2012 parade.
