2014-2015 Warrens Cranberry Festival Royalty June 2015 Update

Royalty greetings! We had a busy start to the month of June and we're so excited to share some of our events.

On June 6- We had a busy day with three events. Bright and early in the morning Queen Olivia, Princesses Tatianna and Brielle attended the Monroe County Dairy Breakfast. When we arrived we rode on a wagon to the food tent where breakfast was served. We had a delicious and filling breakfast.They were serving Culver's custard with strawberry topping for dessert so of course we had to try some. After eating we visited the petting zoo. One of our favorites was the baby pig. It was the cutest thing we ever saw! We walked around to different booths and visited with people. It was a really fun morning on the farm.

At noon we attended the June Dairy Days parade in West Salem. It was a fun and hot parade. During the parade a little boy blew us a kiss so we caught it and blew one back to him. It was so cute! After the parade we walked around the festival in our beautiful sundresses and all enjoyed Blue Moon ice cream. We really liked this parade!

In the evening we attended the Miss Sparta Pageant. The outgoing Miss Sparta, Zoe Roou, along with the contestant all performed an opening routine. The contestant were judged by talent, platform presentation, response to a question and of course their evening gowns. Zoe gave her farewell speech, which was very sad, then they crowned the new royalty. Miss congeniality and 2nd princess is Emily Phillips, who happens to be Brielle's cousin. First princess is Christina Weaver and Alex Lira is the new Miss Sparta.

On June 12th we had the opportunity to go to the La Crosse Loggers game. It was Tomah Night! We played catch with our dads before the game started. They gave us a few tips on how to pitch a baseball because we got to throw out the opening pitch. We visited with a few of the Loggers players and had pictures taken with them. The game went pretty well except the Loggers lost, but it was still an awesome time!

Yours Truly,

2014-2015 Warrens Cranberry Festival Royalty - April Update - 2015

Greetings and Happy Spring!  We are super excited to share the latest events we have taken part in since our last update.

On March 29 - Queen Olivia and Princess Brielle attended the Viroqua Wild West Royalty Coronation.  We talked with both the outgoing royalty and the new incoming royalty.  They had the Wild West Marshals who were dressed as old western cowboys, which was really cool.  The outgoing royalty gave a presentation about their year and all their activities.  They told both funny and sad stories about their favorite memories.  After the six new royalty were crowned we took pictures with them and congratulated them too.  It was a fun event and we had a bunch of fun and can't wait to get to know them better at our upcoming events.

On April 5 - we all attended the Warrens Area Community Easter Breakfast. We served ice cream to all the little kids that came and when we finished, we had a delicious pancake breakfast and got our picture taken with the Easter Bunny too!  It was a fun day and had a great time seeing all the little kids.

We hope you enjoyed our monthly update and invite you check back again next month to see what we have been up to.

Yours Truly,
