The Amazing 2017 Laurel Festival

Tioga County celebrates 76th annual PA State Laurel Fest

 

by John Vogt, , - June 19, 2017

On today’s feature broadcast Home Page recaps the 76th Annual Pennsylvania State Laurel Festival. It was a week packed with fun and pageantry from the pet parade and the Wellsboro Town Band’s first seasonal concert to the the Ten-K Footrace and the queen candidates visit to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. People came from all over the Northeast to enjoy the festivities and the great food from Wellsboro’s fantastic restaurants.

The Home Page Network and KC 101 would like to congratulate Miss Williamson, Abbey Carleton our new 2017 Pennsylvania State Laurel Festival Queen. We wish you and all the participating candidates God’s very best for you in the future. We hope that everyone who attended this years festival had a wonderful time here in Tioga County Pennsylvania will join us again next year.

From the Parade to the Queen, there were many victors throughout the 76th annual Pennsylvania State Laurel Festival. The Wellsboro High School band marched away with the best small band parade award. As for the floats, the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital Auxiliary float was runner-up to Broad Acres in the Community Float Division, while Bob Dunham’s 1937 Oldsmobile took the antique and classic car award. But the award that spoke volumes is the Parade Marshall Award given to two parade entrants that went above and beyond to be a part of this year’s Laurel Festival Parade; the winners – Skip and Carol Cavanaugh and Blake Maxsom.

The 28 candidates for the 2017 Pennsylvania State Laurel Queen enjoyed a full weekend in Tioga County, from a tour of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon to riding on several floats in the parade. Saturday evening, the ladies entered the Deane Center’s Black Box Theatre, to vie for the title and a scholarship. Those titles and scholarships were awarded to 3 of the young ladies. Nominated by her peers, Miss Montoursville, Caroline Hernandez was named Miss Congeniality. Moments later, she was announced as 1st runner-up, and Miss Athens Sarah Montrose was named 2nd runner-up. This year’s title of 2017 Pennsylvania State Laurel Queen going to Miss Williamson Abbey Carleton. Abbey is the daughter of Raquel and Mark Gee of Tioga Township and Carrie and James Carleton Jr of Charleston Township. She will be attending Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove this fall to earn a bachelor’s degree in psychology secondary education.
