Georgetown Fair Queen: 2013 Queen Danielle Brown at the Illinois State Fair
On Friday, August 9th we traveled with 2013 Georgetown Fair Queen Danielle Brown to Springfield for county fair day at the Illinois State Fair. Queen Danielle got an early start because she had a television segment in Champaign before 6:00am. Since we were traveling from Indianapolis we didn't make it to Illinois in time for the television segment, but once we got to the state fair and heard people talking about it, we knew our new queen must have looked great on TV.
The state county fair queen pageant director said there were over 70 queens this year and most of them were at county fair day. We can believe that because Queen Danielle waited in a long line to get measured for her state opening number dress, and the line of queens, junior misses and little misses to introduce themselves on stage was even longer. 2013 Georgetown Fair Queen Danielle Brown got her picture taken with Illinois Agriculture Director Robert Flider and the state fair queen, and spent time chatting with the other fair queens she will see at the state pageant in January.
After the county fair day program Queen Danielle went to see the butter cow and make a few other stops on the state fair grounds. Getting Miss Georgetown's picture is a tradition we've been thrilled to capture for the past few years, and this year the butter cow is a work in progress during the state fair. Visitors told the state fair they wanted to see the butter cow being sculpted, so this year it is being crafted while the state fair is open. We made a lot of stops on the state fair grounds, and it seemed like Queen Danielle knew just about everyone from her work in agriculture, either with FFA, at college or on the radio. But when we asked Queen Danielle about her favorite moment at the state fair she didn't hesitate: while we didn't ride the sky ride, the Segway totally made her day.
Friday was a big day for 2013 Georgetown Fair Queen Danielle Brown, and she had a full night back at the Georgetown Fair with motocross and ping pong drop, so keep watching for more pictures right here at Josh and Joe Travels!
