The retiring Queen and Junior Miss are Shelbi McCray and Adrianna Lohman.
Pageant Director Brooke Earnest said it is great to have the fair back after the pandemic caused it to be cancelled last year. She thanked Shelbi and Adrianna for staying on board for a second year to represent the Bond County Fair. Brooke said this year’s contestants have been practicing for several months. The pageant will be Monday, August 9, at 7:30 in the grandstand.
