Georgetown Fair Queen: 2014 Queen Desiree Bainbridge at Festival of Trees in Danville
The Georgetown Fair Queen is one of the busiest fair queens in Illinois, and this year we were thrilled to be with 2014 Desiree Bainbridge the weekend she visited Festival of Trees at Palmer Arena in Danville, Illinois. We'd seen some pictures, but as the Georgetown Fair Queen's official photographers we had yet to experience the annual event for ourselves. So this year we cooked up a plan with directors Karen and Jill to start the day bright and early for a photoshoot at the fairgrounds, and then spend the day with Queen Desiree at the Festival of Trees and be with her that night in Danville to get a few shots of her in the night parade. Queen Desiree worked the ticket table at the festival, but we were most excited about her appearance at the book tree for story hour. It was pretty incredible how the entire floor of Palmer Arena was transformed into a winter wonderland, and it sure is the right place to get your fill of Christmas trees and gingerbread houses. Festival of Trees is just one of many appearances Desiree Bainbridge will make during her year as Miss Georgetown Fair 2014 so keep checking back to follow her adventures with Josh and Joe Travels!
