Nine girls entered the Little Miss Watkins pageant this year. Their tea was held July 17, and the girls began rehearsing for the pageant. All their hard work culminated in the pageant itself Friday evening, Aug. 3, in McCarthy Park.
The girls performed choreographed dance numbers, and also had individual interviews. From the nine contestants emerged Little Miss Watkins Olivia Klein and Princesses Grace Eder and Alia Dobis.
The other six contestants were Hayden Berthiaume, Vidalia Block, Zoey Donnay, Allison Dorman, Kallie Jorgenson, and Kadence Peters.
All nine girls participated in the Kraut N Wurst parade Saturday morning, either on the Little Miss Watkins float, or in cars.
