Kaitlyn Elizabeth Reile
Kaitlyn Elizabeth Reile is proud to have been chosen as princess-elect for the 69th annual Peanut Festival Court of Broadway Lights. Kaitlyn is the daughter of Hilary and Patricia Reile, and granddaughter of June Reile.
Kaitlyn is the editor of the school yearbook and a second-year member of Link Crew. She plays clarinet in the Floresville Mighty Tiger Band and serves as the senior representative. She is a member of the St. Anthony Catholic Church Teen ACTS retreat team and a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
Upon graduating, Kaitlyn plans to major in interdisciplinary studies at Texas State University and become a kindergarten teacher.
Kaitlyn’s family has been involved with the Peanut Festival for many years. Her brother, Matthew, was scepter bearer for Queen Debra Palitza in the 1985 Court of Future Horizons. In 1997 Matthew represented the Mighty Tiger Band as a duke. Kaitlyn’s sister, Allison, was also a scepter bearer in 1986 for Queen Olga Alvarez in the Court of Golden Twilight Harvest. In 2003, Allison was a duchess representing the San Antonio Lutheran Coronation.
In 2003, Kaitlyn had the honor of being train bearer to Queen Ryann Rocha in the Court of America the Beautiful. She is thrilled and honored that 10 years later she is now a princess in the Floresville Peanut Festival. It is even more exciting that both her parents have designed the robes for this year’s coronation. It is their 10th year being court designers for the Peanut Festival Coronation.
Kaitlyn wishes to thank Reagan Middleton for being her prince. She also wants to thank Reagan and his parents, Kevin and Wendy Middleton, for their encouragement and support through this wonderful experience.
There are no words that express Kaitlyn’s appreciation to Kathy Sawers for sewing her gown and being her loudest cheerleader. She also wishes to express her gratitude to her parents for sewing her train and helping to create many wonderful memories.
Kaitlyn wishes to thank all the families in the Royal Court and the Children’s Court for all of their hard work. She also wishes to thank the Floresville Peanut Festival Association for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. There are many people that volunteer a great deal of their time for the coronation. Kaitlyn appreciates all that they do.
