THE WASHINGTON POST’S ANNUAL PEEPS DIORAMA CONTEST

Every year, in celebration of Easter, the Washington Post searches for the raddest diorama featuring Peeps marshmallow bunnies and chicks (or are they ducks? Doesn’t matter, actually. It’s all festive). The most “peepable moments” are iconic scenes from iconic movies, or a depiction of a historic event in our culture, politics, or pop.

A city we knew about mostly from a video of a local fashion show where a a crazy fight broke out and people threw chairs and tables at each other. But this story isn’t about that.
