Georgetown Fair Queen: 2013 Queen Contestants at Fair Family Evening
On Thursday, August 1st we travled to Georgetown for the fair family dinner. We think this was our third fair family dinner, and we can't say enough wonderful things about a fair pageant, fair board and community that have embraced us a big supporters of the Georgetown Fair Queen. We were on hand to photograph the beautiful contestants competing for the title of Miss Georgetown Fair Queen, but was really good to see so many people we admire and hear about the history of the Georgetown Fair. This year is the 75th Georgetown Fair and it is sure to be one of their best. Listening to Scott Davis talk about each fair board director and how they left a mark on the Georgetown Fair was a lot of fun, and it feels good to be a part of something that does so much good in the community.
Among building improvements, big grant projects and stories about families and dedication to the fair, it was especially good for us to hear Scott brag about Molly Reeves, the first Georgetown Fair Queen to win the Illinois County Fair Queen Pageant and represent Georgetown all year during her summer appearances. As the official photographers of the Georgetown Fair Queen we see the fair through the experiences of the queen, and this year we are proud to photograph the Georgetown Fair Queen Pageant for the fifth time. At fair family dinner, pageant directors Karen and Jill talked about the $4,000 in scholarships being awarded at this years pageant, but they also highlighted the work of the fair queen in the community and how the annual princess luncheon with the queen grown to become a signature event.
The 2013 Georgetown Fair Queen will be crowned on Monday, August 5th at the Georgetown Fair Grounds and we can't wait to meet our next queen! The Georgetown Fair Queen will hit the ground running, spending the week at the fair with her court, serving as the official hostess and just generally having a blast at the showcase events, motocross, demo derby and everything else the fair has to offer. And keep reading Josh and Joe Travels to follow along with the 2013 Georgetown Fair Queen as she heads to Springfield for county fair day at the Illinois State Fair. Get ready for an exciting year, and keep an eye on the contestants as they head for pageant night and we see a new Georgetown Fair Queen crowned, with lots of pictures right here at Josh and Joe Travels!
