We are excited to share the latest events we’ve had the opportunity to take part in since our last update. On April 27th only I, Tatianna, attended the Sparta Festmaster Banquet. I sat with Miss Cashton, Emily Swenson, and La Crescent Applefest 1st Attendant, Emma Booth. It was great meeting and conversing with both of these lovely ladies. After dinner the 2017
Festmaster, Dave Kuderer gave his farewell speech and Mike Arnold, was inducted as the new 2018 Sparta Festmaster.
On May 19th Princess Hannah and I, Princess Lauren, visited Adams Friendship for the Alice in Dairyland Finals. Before dinner we mingled with Miss Wisconsin, the Honey Queen and other distinguished guests and contestants. We thought it was awesome how the MC brought all the past Alice in Dairylands on stage. They each introduced themselves, their year of reign, and a highlight of their year. One of them went to Japan twice and another participated in a pumpkin regatta in which she had to ride and row in a floating pumpkin down a river. The finale of the night was the crowning of the new Alice in Dairyland, Kaitlyn Riley from Gays Mills. We were also given lovely flower centerpieces to take home at the end of the night. It was a wonderful night of talking, taking pictures, and listening to the contestants speeches.
May 20th we attended the Westby Syttende Mai Parade. At the Royalty Tea we were served different types of Norwegian food. We mingled with other visiting royalty and had a large group picture taken after the tea. To celebrate the Norwegian festival we decorated our float with Norwegian flags and we even had a stuffed gnome riding with us.
We hope everyone enjoyed our monthly update and we’re looking forward to what’s ahead on our schedule.
We hope everyone enjoys our Royalty journal!
