From Racine County Eye:

"What is a Kraut Fest
without a Kraut Queen? The 2016 event is in very real danger of not
having a queen to crown unless interested candidates come forward in the
next couple of weeks.
"Organizers say they’ve only received two applications for princesses but not a single application for queen.
"'It’s not a beauty contest and no eating of Kraut required!' Joint Parks Director Jim Svoboda told Racine County Eye.
"The Kraut Queen and Kraut Princess are long-held, beloved traditions
associated with Kraut Fest, scheduled from June 16 – 19, 2016, at the Caledonia and Mount Pleasant Memorial Park.
"Application deadline has been extended until June 1. Click here for the princess application and here for the queen application."
What about a Kraut King and Kraut Prince? This is discrimination unless they let men apply to be Kraut Queen. I know a few queens myself. One lives just down the hall from me. He's as funny as Charles Nelson Reilly.
