We are excited to share the latest events we have attended since last month.
On July 10th we took our float to New Lisbon for the Wa Du Shuda Days Parade. It was a beautiful warm day. We enjoyed good food and even participated in the Dunk Tank!
On July 11th we went to Trempealeau Catfish Days. It was another beautiful day for a parade! We enjoyed a Royalty Tea which included a trivia game and a dance contest, sadly we lost in both. Fun was had by all, the winners of the contests received a Fish gift grab bag. It was an impressive parade with a large amount of people in attendance.
July 14th a little bit of rain couldn't keep us away from attending the La Crosse Interstate Fair. We did introductions to the audience along with the other visiting royalty and took a group picture. We also enjoyed a 4-H fashion show and a tour of the fairgrounds, followed by refreshments. On our tour we saw numerous farm animals including pigs, sheep, goats, horses, cows, dogs, bunnies, and chickens, oh my!
July 17th we ventured up to Vesper for the Vesper Days Parade! We met Miss Wisconsin for America, Krysten Eckes, who is a Vesper native. While it was a small town parade, it was busy and the spectators enjoyed seeing us and were excited to hear that Cranfest is back on for this year!
July 20th we had an excellent day at the Huntsinger Farms in Eau Claire County for the Farm Technology Days. We enjoyed viewing many booths and samples from Ferguson Farms apples, Silver Springs horseradish and Salmon from a farm in Northfield. We also ran into Alice in Dairyland, Julia Nunes, and Nancy VanderMeer Wisconsin State Assembly District 70. We finished our day with a bus tour to a radish farm and complex, Ferguson Apple Orchard, and the Nelson family farm where they actually drove the bus inside the barn. We also learned horseradish is a member of the mustard family. It was a fun learning experience for all!
August 8th we attended the Fairchild Fundays Parade. It was a very nice small town parade but there were a lot of people there watching and waving. They were excited to see our beautiful float.
August 11th Queen Lindsey and Princess Annabelle attended the WSCGA Summer Field Day on the Whittlesey Cranberry Co. in Wisconsin Rapids. We visited many of the exhibit booths and visited with the vendors. We enjoyed a nice marsh tour and a delicious lunch was served. It was an enjoyable day on the marsh.
August 12th we loaded up the Suburban and headed to West Allis for the Wisconsin State Fair. We rode the Skyglider across the fairgrounds and had a fun time on all the other rides. After going on rides we walked through the exhibit building and visited with many people. We had an enjoyable lunch with some delicious ice cream and headed back home.
We hope you enjoyed our adventures as much as we have!
