ROYAL COURT APPLICATIONS

by Shauna Henke

You'll note that our Queen's crown doesn't appear like those of other local festival queens. 
This was by design. 

The Queen's Committee chose a crown that more reflected our history and let our Queen stand out from the crowd!

The crown is passed on to the new Queen every year at our Royal Court Coronation, and the outgoing Queen receives a different Keep crown.
