Clouds cleared in time for Hutchinson’s Water Carnival Kiddie Day Parade and the Junior Royalty Coronation.
Dozens of kids dressed up in costumes for categories including TV and Movies, Historical Figures, Clowns and Bums, and more, and walked through Library Square Saturday morning waving and even throwing candy to parade go-ers. Attendees also got to know the 6 Junior Royalty Candidates before reigning royalty Grace Schaalma and Aidan Young passed on their titles to the 2012 Junior Royalty. The new Junior Queen is Tylee Plombon and the new Junior Commodore is Sam Starke.
Both will be riding on the Water Carnival Royalty Float in Sunday’s Parade.
