A Day to Remember: Miss Georgetown Queen Princess Program
On Saturday, March 13th we traveled to Georgetown, Illinois, to spend the day with our friends at the Georgetown Fair. Queen directors Karen and Jill put on their very first princess luncheon and we were invited to do the pictures. You can check out one of our earlier posts to see when we went over to help do marketing pictures to promote the event. We hope those marketing pictures might have helped, because we hear the princess luncheon was in high demand and sold out 200 tickets in about a week.
The Miss Georgetown princess program was, by far, the very best princess program we've very experienced. It is even better than the princess camp we see at a national pageant program and much better than what we are used to seeing at state pageants. Those other pageants do good work and give their girls an amazing experience, but what Karen and Jill pulled off for Miss Georgetown was truly incredible.
With the help of a dedicated fair board and lots of volunteers, they transformed the fairgrounds banquet hall into a princess wonderland. There were dozens of tables with white linen tablecloths and real china dishes with plated meals for each and every princess and parents. Queen Danielle sat in front of a castle backdrop and every princess got a picture printed before leaving the event. Danielle read a storybook, led a princess dance and gave away lots of really cool gift baskets. We will try to post lots of pictures from this event because we can't even begin to describe it - it was simply the most grand princess event we have seen at any pageant at any level.
So a big thank you to Queen Danielle, directors Karen and Jill and all of our friends at Miss Georgetown who let us be part of this amazing event. And another big thank you for treating us to a fine meal with great friends at the Possum Trot.
