2010 Marion/Somerset County Strawberry Festival - Little Miss and Mr. Strawberry

 "There are no looses in 'kid' pageants. Everyone is a winner, and at the moment they enter the stage, braver than most adults."

First, let me say that I was not going to post the Strawberry Festival photos until this weekend, but I have so many photos, I thought I would at least post the Little Miss and Mr. Strawberry photos. Be sure and check back on Monday for more photos.

Thanks to Crisfield Events, the Crisfield Heritage Foundation, and the Somerset County Arts Council for all their hard work. 

Miss Delmarva calls the cue for this cutie.

And before I get to the winners (remember, everyone was a winner), Here is a little photo essay...

 "I'm not too sure about this."

"If I hide, no one will see me."

"Well, let me check this out again."

"Nope. Back to my strawberry patch. Can't this man see I'm a "sleeping" strawberry? Wake me when it's harvest time."

"I think I'll take a peek at him while he's not looking."

"Well, he seems nice. Anyway, it's too nice a day for "berry" sleeping."
 Kudos to Adam Riggin for bringing out the best in all the contestants. Adam is a pro at that!

The tension rises in the crowd.

And the winners are...


I now present you with the new 2010 Little Miss and Mr. Somerset County Strawberry Queen and King...

Be sure and check back on Monday for more photos. And don't forget Freedom Fest is Sunday, July 4, at Somers Cove Marina. Fireworks, tributes to veterans and military, and just a lot of fun. Photos from Freedom Fest will be posted by July 7. I am a busy gal; did someone say I was retired? Say it ain't so!

Love the photos Patty! Can't wait to see the rest! I'll be back this weekend for Freedom Fest. :)

Thanks. I appreciate your visiting our little corner of the world. Hope to see you at more events. Perhaps we can chat more. And hopefully, the weather will be cooler. It was hot, folks! But Eastern Shore people don't let hot weather ruin their fun.

Don't worry Patty. I'll be down this weekend for Freedom Fest. :)

Patty said...

Look me up. I will running around taking photos, and I don't see faces.

HAHA! I know how that is! I've often been told later "didn't you see me? I called for you." When you're doing what you love, it's like having blinders on. :)
