|The 2013 Fair Queen and members of her court are shown above. From left are: Cheyenne Morsheiser, second attendant, Brittany Rohr, first attendant, Annabel Vernier, first runnerup to the queen, and Queen Elizabeth Bormuth.
Elizabeth “Liz” Bormuth was crowned the 2013 Carroll County Fair Queen during a ceremony that had to be moved from in front of the grandstand to up in the seats of the grandstand Tuesday afternoon.
Queen Contest Coordinator Karla Wells and her crew had laid out an elaborate setting of awards, crowns, chairs and even cookies on the cement area in front of the grandstand. As the time of the crowning drew nears, black clouds rolled in and dumped buckets of water from the sky.
With some assistance from fair visitors, the items were moved up the grandstand steps and into the seating area where the “show went on.”
