Royer crowned; Grange Fair gets underway
The 143rd annual Centre County Grange Fair kicked off in grand style on Wednesday night, with the coronation of this year’s Grange Fair Queen.
Megan Royer, a 2017 graduate of State College Area High School, claimed the crown. The event took place at the Fair’s Southside Stage.
Royer was runner-up last year. Emma Spackman was crowned queen in 2016.
A total of four young women from Centre County – Amelia Miller, Katie Hartle and Gabrielle Swavely – participated in the competition. Miller was selected as the runner-up.
The competitors ranged in age from 16 to 20. The winner is awarded $500. The runner-up gets $300 and the other participants receive $100 each.
There are limited events at the fair today. The highlight is the Junior Rabbit Show, which takes place at 6 p.m. in the judging area. The 2017 Glamping Tent will be revealed from 6 to 8 p.m.
The fair runs through Aug. 26 at the fairgrounds in Centre Hall.
