Hey Canada! It’s been yet another busy weekend for Miss Teen Chatham Kent-World 2013! This past weekend I participated in the 11th annual Retro Festival in Chatham – on May 24th and 25th. This was my first big event as Miss Teen CK – it was great opportunity and a lot of fun! The whole weekend was packed with fun activities: Zip line, Elvis Impersonators, famous cars like the Bat-mobile, The Trews concert and so much more! On the Friday night we kicked off Retro fest with our classic car cruise parade! Unfortunately the weather was pretty chilly that night, but it was still a great success none the less! 😀 I rode in a beautiful green convertible that seemed to match with my green dress – and the owners lent me some blankets for the windy ride! Even though my fingers were frozen – It was great to practice my “queen wave” to the crowd of people down town! During the parade and Retro fest weekend I had kids calling me a princess. I got to put a smile on their faces and I really did feel like a princess – Chatham-Kent’s princess 🙂 We followed up the evening by introducing the Wreck It Ralph free movie in the park sponsored by Haggerty auto insurance! It was a great turnout and a perfect way to end the first day of festivities! I arrived early Saturday morning to set up my fundraising booth for Free The Children! We raffled off a gift basket and held a gumball guess for charity! During the afternoon I helped out the junior judges who were judging the classic cars and made some new friends along the way! I introduced the Elvis impersonators – three generations of kings of rock n’ roll! It would not have been retro fest without the king himself! 😉 It was such a great weekend and opportunity for me to go out and promote my title as well as fund raise for free the children. I had a lot of fun and got to meet some new faces out and about in Chatham-Kent. I’d like to thank the events planner and everyone at retro fest for coming out and helping me in my fundraising efforts and my journey to Miss Teen Canada-World!
