2015-2016 Warrens Cranberry Festival Royalty July Update


Royal Greetings!

This summer has been nothing short of amazing! The girls and I have so much fun together; it's all laughs and smiles. We are in the midst of the busiest season of the year, with parades every weekend. We are having a great time during the parades. We love seeing people that we know along the route, but also really love meeting so many new people. We are becoming close with royalty from other towns, as we see them every weekend as well. It is nice gaining new friends that we would otherwise never had the chance to meet.  This has been our adventure….

June 4– Princess Cassie attended the Miss Sparta Pageant. Cassie enjoyed an exciting evening of talent and performances by all of the contestants. The newly crowned Miss Sparta is Christina Weaver.

June 12— We  attended the Sparta Butter Fest Parade. The parade route was crowded with people, and the weather was
absolutely beautiful. After the parade all of our families went to the fest grounds and enjoyed festival food and ice cold slushies.  Next we were off to try out some of the carnival rides. Princess Cassie and I are not too fond of heights so we held hands and kept our eyes shut the entire time. Princess Ellie had a lot of fun with that, of course. It was a fun day for all of us.

June 17—Queen Alison attended the June Dairy Days at the Tomah VA Medical Hospital. Alison helped scoop ice cream with a princess from the Wa Da Shuda days royalty. Alison had a wonderful time and enjoyed visiting with all the veterans.

June 19— We attended the Cranberry Blossom Festival in Wisconsin Rapids. It was such a hot day that all three of us got matching sunburns from our dresses. Ellie has relatives who live in the area so we visited with them over lunch and they even made a sign to hold up as we passed by during the parade. After the parade we begged Mr. Carney to take us to Dairy Queen for ice cream and we won out. Only problem was Betsy (nickname for our float) took up the entire parking lot. A fun day was had by all despite the heat.

June 25— This was a very busy day. We started the morning out at the Wetherby Cranberry marsh for Blossom Days. At
Blossom Days we presented our food demonstrations, this was a test run for the real deal the Wisconsin State Fair in August. Next we were off to The Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center in Warrens. We used our artistic talents by doing face painting on all the kids faces. One little girl even asked if we knew Queen Elizabeth of England. She asked to have her picture taken with us and said “this was the best day of my life” and gave us each a hug. That evening we went to Oshkosh for the Miss Wisconsin Pageant. We had great seats right in front of the stage. It was a blast watching the contestant's compete in talent, swimwear, formals and answer their competition question. Miss Green Bay Area, Courtney Pelot was crowned the new 2016 Miss
Wisconsin. Cassie, Ellie and I were beyond excited the entire night and enjoyed every minute of it.

I love spending time with my two princesses and their families and I am so lucky to be able to spend my year with them! We hope you enjoyed our monthly update and we look forward to what’s ahead on our calendar.

2015-2016 Warrens Cranberry Festival Royalty May-June Update



Royal Greetings! 

We are excited to share the latest events we’ve had the opportunity to take part in since our last update.

On April 22nd Nodji accompanied us to  the Sparta Festmaster’s Banquet. The meal was delicious and it was an enjoyable night even if we did have a little mishap of spilled milk.

April 23rd we had a fun filled day of helping out at Princess For A Day. Approximately 40 little girls attended wearing their lovely princess dresses. The young ladies were all delighted to get their hair, makeup and nails done. They were all so fascinated with our crowns and wanted to take lots of pictures with us.

Cassie and I had the privilege of going to the Alice in Dairyland Coronation in Dodge County. We thought it was a great experience! Ann O'Leary was crowned the 69th Alice in Dairyland, and she is very deserving of the title. 

The parade season has begun! We’ve had three parades so far this summer: Westby Syttende Mai, Camp Douglas Armed Forces Day, and Arcadia Broiler Days. We were very lucky to have beautiful weather for all three parades.

We also went to the premier of Discover Wisconsin episode of “Fall Fun at Warrens Cranberry Festival”. It was a nice picnic style dinner and we enjoyed the new episode of Warrens Cranberry Festival  that is being aired . 

On May 21st Cassie, Ellie and I attended the TACU Cancer Support breakfast and 5K (we didn't run- not really dressed for the part!) but had a fun time Day Parade in Camp Douglas. What a great parade to show our
support of our troops and all the service people. There were 40 units in the parade this year, their biggest
parade yet. We were proud to be a  part of this day. Thank you to all who serve!

On May 29th we attended Arcadia Broiler Days Festival. The day started out with a royalty tea and group
Picture. The parade was long, but really fun. There  were a lot of people along the parade route and the
weather was wonderful!

On May 30th we attended the Warren Mills Cemetery service. The princesses and I had the honor of laying  the wreath for the service. It was a beautiful ceremony and the weather was gorgeous. We enjoyed a chicken  dinner prepared by the Warrens Lions Club and then finished our day by participating in the Mather Cemetery service.

The princesses and I are truly enjoying our time together. These girls are great!

We hope you enjoyed our monthly update and we look forward to what’s ahead on our calendar.

2015-2016 Warrens Cranberry Festival Royalty April Update

Royal Greetings! 

We are excited to share the latest event we’ve had the opportunity to take part in since our last update.

This past month has been pretty quiet for us. We attended the Warrens Easter Breakfast and enjoyed visiting with everyone who attended. We served juice, cinnamon rolls, and “bunny treats”. It was a good turn out, and we even had a chance to take pictures with the Easter Bunny!

Our next  royal activity was to take all the Christmas decorations off the float and get it ready the parade season. We replaced all the floor sheeting and tried out our brand new canvas cover. We love it! We are all ready for our busy parade season which is approaching very quickly.

We hope you enjoyed our update for this month and we look forward to what’s ahead on our calendar.
