Miss Georgetown Fair Queen Sarah Sigmon Spring Portrait Session in Danville

We've had a lot of fun doing pictures with Miss Georgetown Fair 2016 Sarah Sigmon, and pretty soon you'll start seeing pictures from our spring portrait session being used in the Vermilion County area to promote the Georgetown Fair and the Georgetown Fair Queen Pageant coming up in August. Queen Sarah has a busy summer ahead of her, and one of her biggest responsibilities is to be part of the search for the next queen.

Think you've got what it takes to be the next Georgetown Fair Queen? Want to sponsor one of the best programs for young women in Illinois? Look for the Georgetown Fair Queen Pageant on facebook, contact the Georgetown Fair or get in touch with pageant directors Jill Pope and Karen Thornsbrough.

This picture is a preview from our spring portrait session with Queen Sarah, and some of you might recognize the location in Danville. Look for more pictures of Queen Sarah coming this summer, and be sure to tell us which ones you like most when you see Josh and Joe Travels!

Georgetown Fair Queen Sarah Sigmon at the D102 Mother Daughter Contest in Danville

On Saturday, May 13, 2017, we were in Danville, IL, with Miss Georgetown Fair Sarah Sigmon for the D102 Mother Daughter Look-A-Like Contest. It was great to see Tommy B and the D102 crew at the contest, and Queen Sarah was right up front because she was one of the judges. Making appearances with D102 is just part of how the Georgetown Fair Queen is active in the Vermilion County area, and she'll be especially busy this summer promoting the Georgetown Fair coming up in August. Queen Sarah has a lot planning this summer so be sure to wave if you see her official photographers Josh and Joe Travels!

St Louis Zoo and Forest Park

We've been on the go a lot this spring and we wanted to show you a few pictures from a recent weekend in St. Louis. We were in St. Louis to see one of our favorite Georgetown fair queens graduate at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and we couldn't pass up the chance to cross the river and spend a little time in one of our favorite cities.

St. Louis is famous for barbecue and we were quick to find our way to Pappy's Smokehouse. Pappy's actually advertises themselves as the best Memphis style bbq in St. Louis, so you'll have to figure out that part on your own. What we can tell you is we waited in line for about 20 minutes before we hit the order counter on a Sunday right at lunch rush and you'd better know what you want to order by the time you hit hit the register. We spent most of the time in line checking out the menu. We waited maybe 5-10 minutes for our food to be brought to our table. Bottom line: Joe says these are some of the best ribs he's had anywhere in the country, and the burnt ends are so good alone you won't want to use too much sauce. Higher recommended.

We also spent a few hours in Forest Park, and because there is no general admission charge to enter the St. Louis Zoo, we went in to check on the elephants. Being in Forest Park reminded us just how cool this place really is - not all cities have an enormous green space filled with parks, golf, museums and a world class zoo. History buffs will remember St. Louis hosted the worlds fair, and we actually parked near the pavilion and walked to zoo's north entrance. We had a lot of fun in St. Louis and we can't wait to be there again, so be sure to say high if you see Josh and Joe Travels!
