New Willmar Fests Queen of Festivals crowned; 'It means more than I can say'


For three young women, the last day of Willmar Fests ended just like a fairy tale.

Megan Michaelis, 19, was crowned Willmar Fests Queen of Festivals at Saturday's coronation. Also crowned were Shelby Morton, 18, as Aqua Princess; and Ashley Bach, 18, as International Princess.

"It feels unreal," Michaelis said, brushing away tears after the coronation ceremony. "It means more than I can say. I'm really excited for this year."
