2016-2017 Warrens Cranberry Festival Royalty October Update

Royal greetings everyone!

We are excited to share some of the different opportunities we have taken part in since we have won the honor of being crowned your 2016-2017 Warrens Cranberry Festival Royalty.  We had a busy four days of Cranfest and on Friday night, September 23rd we had the opportunity to go to the Tomah Sparta Speedway and ride in the parade lap holding the American flag during the national anthem. Each of us got to wave the green flag to start a race, this was a very fun experience for the whole royal family. September 30th we got to ride on top of our float for the homecoming parade. It was fun seeing familiar faces and waving to family and friends. On
October 1st we went to Wetherby Cranberry Marsh and the Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center. This was such a fun day. We put our hip boots and waded out into the Cranberry Bogs to take pictures. While at the marsh, we had the opportunity to meet and greet people from all over the US. Next we headed off to the
Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center where we enjoyed a delicious lunch. We also made crafts with
children and mingled with visitors. We hope you have a "Berry" good time until we write again.

Yours truly,

2016-2017 Warrens Cranberry Festival Royalty-
