It was a beautiful evening in Altona Park Saturday for the crowning of the 2017 Manitoba Sunflower Festival Queen and royalty. Nine young women competed in this year's pageant, and Morgan Klassen was selected by the judging panel as the 2017 Queen.
Morning Show Co-Host Chris Sumner caught up with Morgan just a few minutes after I read her name to the hundreds in attendance, bringing tears to her eyes and cheers from the crowd.
Morgan Klassen, the 2017 Manitoba Sunflower Festival Queen. 1st Princess was given to Taylor Wiebe, and 2nd princess was Jessie Toews. Congratulations to Morgan, Taylor and Jessie for forming the 2017 Royalty, and to all the young women who participated in this year's pageant.
