On Saturday, February 1, the 53rd annual Greater Pottsville Winter Carnival coronation pageant was held at Pottsville Area High School. There were 31 second and third graders, 16 high school juniors, and 12 young women from around the count who competed for titles. This was the culmination of month-long events held during the month of January. The events for the girls included fashion shows, judge’s receptions, and other events. The girls are judged on poise, presence, and personality. There are also two non-judged events that are open to everyone, and they are so much fun! They are Winterfest, which will be held this Saturday, February 8, and the Queen’s Royal Tea Party. This year’s tea party theme was The Hundred Acre Wood. I would totally recommend coming to any of these events to support Winter Carnival and to beat the winter blues. Congratulations to all the winners this year!
