Peanut Festival wardrobe displays
The wardrobes of royal courts from past Peanut Festivals will be on display throughout Floresville in anticipation of this year’s 68th annual Peanut Festival, taking place the second weekend in October.
The wardrobe for the 1982 Court of Southern Traditions with Queen Ann Rakowitz and King Monte Scott Fuller will be on display Sept. 14-20. On display Sept. 21-27 will be the 1992 Court of Enchantment of the Seas with Queen Carolyn Marie (Gaona) Pena and King Timothy Trevino.
The 2002 Court of Texas Treasures will be displayed Sept. 28 to Oct. 4. Queen Tamara Lynn (Jung) Shannon and King Matthew David Cummings reign over that court.
The wardrobe of last year’s Court of Celebrations of Texas, Queen Alexa Carvajal and King Garrett Pollok, will be displayed Oct. 5-11.
Items from the past courts’ royal wardrobes will be displayed at Hoelscher’s Furniture, First National Bank, the Wilson County News, City Cleaners, and Farmers Insurance.
Be sure to view the wardrobes of the newly crowned court during the festival downtown at Muscle Mechanic -- John Guerrero, Avana’s, downtown space owned by Jim Miller, A Rey of Flowers, Wilson County News, and the Office of Lou Rosenberg.
The Peanut Festival Association wishes to thank the area businesses for supporting the tradition and allowing the courts to display their wardrobes.
