Crowning A New Springfield Marquis Rose Festival Queen

For over 100 years one of the biggest annual events on the west coast is the Portland Rose Festival.  For a few weeks in June, Portland becomes the mythical realm of Rosaria reigned over by junior and senior queens in a celebration of the beauty of the rose that grows so prolifically in our region.
What girl doesn't love wearing a sparklie crown on her head regardless of how long she has been on this earth?  So it was as the ladies of Springfield Marquis gathered on Friday for the crowning of their Rose festival senior queen's court representative.  As the Beauties of America's 50s queen I was thrilled when I was asked to join in the crowning of their  royalty.
Next stop?  The coronation tea in April where the local queens will gather to learn who is crowned the 2010 Rose Festival Senior queen to reign in June during Rose Festival.  I have my fingers crossed!
