Minneapolis Aquatennial Parade

With severe thunderstorms coming there was a possibility of the parade being canceled.All Royalty groups participating in the parade were gathered in a large building to wait out the storm. Safe and dry. During this time my Royal sisters and I had the opportunity to meet and visit with many other Royalty from different towns and festivals.After a starting time delay, the weather passed, and the parade began. It was fun to see all the people that braved the weather enjoying the parade. The Aquatennial is celebrating its 83rd anniversary this year.We met the 2023 Queen of the Lakes, Kaia Schomberg (see photo). She competed with 37 candidates to earn her title and will make 250 personal appearances during her reign!  It was a fun night. 2023 Inver Grove Heights Miss Princess
