The blog of our Photographers Josh and Joe! Here is a sneak peak of pictures and journaling of Queen Alexandria’s events~
With the Georgetown Fair Queen contestants informational tea coming up on July 8th we can’t help but think of 2011 Queen Alexandria Hannan and her exciting year representing the community of Georgetown. As her official photographers we’ve had the pleasure of being part of her entourage, and we even got to go with her to Springfield when she visited the 2011 Illinois State Fair.
County fair day at the state fair is a great day, especially if you are a fair queen. Queen Alex got her picture taken with the state fair queen and had lunch with all the other county queen and directors before introducing herself on stage.
After the lunch we spent some time touring the fairgrounds. We got a picture of Queen Alex with the butter cow (we think this is a tradition) and found some other iconic scenes before heading back to Georgetown. Because the Illinois State Fair and the Georgetown Fair take place the same week in August, the Georgetown Fair Queen has a big job to do. Not only does she do the state fair visit, but as the official hostess of her own fair, she heads back to Georgetown the same night for a full schedule. While Miss Georgetown is at the state fair she counts on her court to hold down the fort at home.
Queen Alexandria competed among the most beautiful and talented young women in Vermilion County to earn the title of Miss Georgetown, and we can’t wait to meet all the contestants for the 2012 pageant. Things get going on July 8th at the informational tea, so keep reading our earlier post about Miss Georgetown to find links to the official pageant website, or get in touch with directors Karen Thornsbrough and Jill Pope.
As the Georgetown Fair Queen’s official photographer, we get to go along on her adventures, and we have trouble keeping up! Miss Georgetown starts her job the moment she is crowned. Last year Queen Alex was doing radio interviews the very next morning, and she was accompanied by her court all week.
Miss Georgetown gets a fantasticly cool car to drive the week of the fair, and every contestant competes for scholarships, special awards and college assistance from Danville Area Community College. All the contestants get a great experience at the Georgetown Fair when they go out on the grounds the day before the pageant. They get an up close look at all the exhibits and livestock barnes, and they get to see one of the biggest and best fairs in Illinois in full swing before they talk to the judges during interviews on pageant day.
We can’t wait to meet all the contestants competing in the Georgetown Fair Queen Pageant, and we will be posting lots of pictures of Miss Georgetown Fair Queen Alexandria Hannan and her summer appearances right here at Josh and Joe Travels! Don’t forget, get all the information you need to find out how to become a contestant at the Georgetown Fair Queen pageant website.

A FAIRY TALE COME TRUE – LUNCH WITH THE GEORGETOWN FAIR QUEEN!
This was a very special day for almost 250 guests at the Georgetown Fair Banquet and Conference Center. Queen Alexandria greeted her princesses with a yellow canvas bag embroidered with a silver crown full of presents and of course a crown! They learned to curtsey, listened to a story, danced two princess dances, and had a great lunch including grapes in a glass slipper!! Of course each princess received an autographed picture taken with Queen Alexandria.
