The fairest of the fair

The 2017 Miss Bureau County Fair Queen is Brianna Legner of Princeton. She will represent the Bureau County Fair at the Miss Illinois County Fair Queen Pageant at the state fair convention in January. Miss Bureau County Fair’s court includes first runner-up Hannah Atherton and second runner-up Autumn Hankins. The new Junior Miss Bureau County Fair is Alexis Marquez. Her court is first runner-up Elizabeth Boyles and second runner-up Chloe Sampson. The new Little Miss Bureau County Fair is Isabella Bauer. Her court is first runner-up Kiyrra Morris and second runner-up Piper Hansen. These beautiful young ladies will have a full week at the fair — presenting ribbons and trophies at the livestock shows, introducing themselves on stage, riding rides and getting muddy at the demo derby. Be sure to congratulate them when you see them around the grounds. (They would love to pose with you in a picture too!)
