Could you be Crowthorne Carnival's princess?By Victoria Smith
April 24, 2012
Girls who dream about becoming a princess could have their wish come true at Crowthorne’s village carnival.
Each time the parish holds its summer community event, a carnival princess is chosen, giving one lucky girl the chance to be treated like royalty for the day.
The tradition will continue this year when the procession takes place on July 7.
At the last carnival in 2010, Milly Crocker, 11, of Wildmoor Heath School, was the chosen pampered princess.
Her attendants were Katie Howarth, 11, of Hatch Ride School, and Francesca Cannarozzo, 10, of Oaklands Junior School.
They were all given pretty outfits to wear and keep, had their hair, nails and make-up done, attended a special pre-procession reception in their honour, led the carnival procession in a vintage car, and were presented with commemorative gifts.
Any girl aged between eight and 11 who lives in or attends school in Crowthorne can enter this year’s carnival princess competition at Crowthorne library.
Entrants will be judged on Saturday, April 28, by a panel of four who may ask questions about what they enjoy at school, their hobbies, their family and why they want to be a princess. Their smile and personality will count for most with the judges.
Youngsters can fill in an entry form at the library or online at www.crowthornecarnival.co.uk by Tuesday, April 24.
