A full house witnessed the crowning of the new Washington County Fair Queen last night.  The six candidates vying for Queen took part in different activities throughout the day leading up to the coronation.


Miss Iowa Mariah Carey tells KCII News that even though she has been Miss Iowa for about a month, she was able to give advice on how to handle the events of the day.


Carey was also able to announce this year’s Queen who is Lexi Marek.  Marek says she had always dreamed of becoming Queen and is glad she will be able to represent the County this week during the Fair and at the State Fair next month.


The Washington County Fair Princess is Sarah Altenhofen and Miss Congenality went to Shari Temple.
