Deep into late-night rehearsals for the exciting Queen’s Pageant on Saturday June 15, 2019, the nine Dairy Festival contestants also turn out for early-morning radio interviews on KSST’s Good Morning Show. These activities follow a busy first week which had them milking cows, going up in hot air balloons and riding in the parade on a float she helped to build! On Wednesday June 12, we met charming Contestants #4, #5 and #6 !
Sable Erdmeir became a Hopkins County resident as a fifth grader, and credits her grandmother Debbie Young for introducing her to the excitement of Dairy Festival early on.
