What is a Kraut Fest without a Kraut Queen? The 2016 event is in very real danger of not having a queen to crown unless interested candidates come forward in the next couple of weeks.
Organizers say they’ve only received two applications for princesses but not a single application for queen.
“It’s not a beauty contest and no eating of Kraut required!”Joint Parks Director Jim Svoboda told Racine County Eye.
The Kraut Queen and Kraut Princess are long-held, beloved traditions associated with Kraut Fest, scheduled from June 16 – 19, 2016, at the Caledonia and Mount Pleasant Memorial Park.
