The Crown: Festival Queens on Family, Community & Royalty

The pageantry of Acadiana’s festivals has evolved over the years, but it remains deep-rooted in tradition and still has great meaning to past and present queens, their families and the communities they represent. We caught up with three recently crowned queens who now are part of the long history of three of the area’s oldest festivals. They are now extensions of their community’s identity and spirit – a legacy they are proud to own.
