This post was originally published on this site

A number of events are scheduled leading up to the announcement and crowning of the 2017 Rush County Fair Queen, June 10.

Currently, contestants vying to reign during the week-long Rush County Fair that runs June 24 through July 1 will host a car wash from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Hubler Auto Center, 1700 North Main Street. The free-will donation event will be held rain or shine, with all proceeds being used for gifts for the winners of the contest.

Sunday, May 21, the 2017 fair queen contestants will be joined by 2016 Rush County Fair Queen Courtney Hall and will host a Princess Tea Party for all young ladies ages three to nine at the Rushville Community Building. The Rush Shelby Community building is located at the Rush County Fairgrounds in the 1200 block of North Sexton Street.

The cost of the Princess Tea is $5 and the young princesses are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite outfit. Those in attendance will have their picture taken with 2016 Miss Rush County Courtney Hall which they can take home at the conclusion of the event. The youngsters will decorate a crown and sash that also can be taken home with them.

Other events at the tea include games and the opportunity to learn to walk and wave just like the fair queen contestants the night of the pageant.

Punch and cookies will also be served.

Those wishing to participate are asked to contact Chairman Karen Macy at (765) 561-7880 or co-chair Paula Shelton at (765) 561-0460.
