2016-2017 Warrens Cranberry Festival April Royalty Update



Royal Greetings and Happy Spring! 

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

On April 2, we attended the Westby Syttende Mai Coronation. At this event they also hold a “Grandparent of the Year” contest. Participating students must write a 100 word or less essay explain why their grandparent deserves the tittle of “Grandparent of the Year”. The winner gets to ride in both of their parades along with their grandchild. Each of the contestants are sponsored by one of the area businesses and they wear a unique Norwegian style dress. It was exciting to watch and see who would be crowned the new Westby Syttende Mai Princess and her attendants. We congratulated the newly crowned royalty and took pictures with them. We are looking forward to joining them for their parade in May! 

On April 15, We attended the Warrens Easter Breakfast and enjoyed visiting with everyone who attended. It was a good turn out, and the pancake breakfast was delicious. We even had a chance to take pictures with the Easter Bunny, what a great community event! 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.

Yours Truly,

2016-2017 Warrens Cranberry Festival March Royalty Update


Royal Greetings!  

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

This past month has been pretty quiet for us, we only had one event. On  February 15th Princess Lindsay and Princess Stevie were invited to the Tomah VA to celebrate The Salute To National Veteran Patients Week. The event was close to Valentine’s Day, so they had a giant heart shaped cake decorated in patriotic colors that we served to the veterans. We enjoyed mingling and talking to the veterans afterwards. What a great way to salute our veterans. It was a great time and a wonderful experience for us!

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

Yours Truly,

2016-2017 Warrens Cranberry Festival February Royalty Update


Royal Greetings!

We are excited to tell you about our latest adventure. On Friday night, February 3rd Queen Mackenzie and Princess Lindsay attended the Westby Ski Jump. The ski jump is extremely high and there is a wooden staircase leading all the way to the top. It was an amazing night watching the skiers take off and glide through the air and land at the bottom of the jump. Skiers were there from all over the U.S. and other countries including Norway. We even got a chance to snap some pictures with a few of them. We had a wonderful time and were able to visit with the Westby Snowflake Royalty and Sparta Butterfest Royalty. The night was chilly but we were able to keep toasty warm by the huge bonfire.

Later this week we will be visiting the Tomah VA Hospital to celebrate Valentines Day with all the veterans. Time is flying by and we’ve had such an amazing time representing the Warrens Cranberry Festival and sharing our adventures.

Yours Truly,
