2014 Rice Street Festival Coronation

On Sunday, July 27th, my royal family and I attended the Rice Street Festival Coronation.  It was really fun for me personally because I had had the opportunity the week before at the Rice Street Fashion Show.  In addition, I go to school with one of the candidates, and another was a former Miss Inver Grove Heights! We mingled with some visiting royalty before the ceremony began which was nice because I then had the opportunity to catch up with the New Brighton royalty — haven’t seen them in a while.  2014-RiceStreetFestival2The coronation was short and sweet and, although there were some technical difficulties with the outgoing ladies’ slideshows, they talked about their year and their many experiences with grace.  My royal sisters and I will truly miss these three young women as we got to know them very well during our reign. They did a wonderful job representing Rice Street and I know the newly chosen ambassadors will as well!  All of the candidates were stunning and I definitely do not envy the judges!  I am looking forward to seeing them at some of our upcoming events.
