Apple Blossom Festival Names Royal Court
The 101st Washington State Apple Blossom Festival named the Queen and two Princesses of the Royal Court at Wenatchee High School Saturday night.
Tess Sparks heard her name as Queen to cap the night and said she was not expecting it.
"Just having these two girls by my side and then all the rest of the girls were so supportive. Hugging and crying, that was just so beautiful cause we all have such a close knit bond."
The two girls she was referring to were Princesses Kelly Norland and Kaia St. John.
Norland says she couldn't believe they called her name.
"I was really honored to hear my name called. I'm so excited. I'm with my two best friends for life and I am so excited for this journey."
St. John was also in disbelief upon hearing her name.
"It's like a dream come true. I didn't expect it and I am so thankful and excited for this next year with these amazing girls."
The Grand Marshals for the Stemilt Grand Parade were also announced to be Music Theatre of Wenatchee. The parade is May 2nd.
