Makayla Ridgeway was crowned queen of the Wabash County 4-H Fair on Wednesday night, July 1. Actually, she was crowned twice on the stage of the Honeywell Center’s Ford Theater.
After placing the crown on Ridgeway’s head, 2014 Fair Queen Amanda Underwood hugged Ridgeway. Ridgeway, while returning Underwood’s hug, tilted her head and the crown fell off.
After the audience first gasped, then chuckled, Underwood retrieved the fallen crown, placed it back on Ridgeway’s head, then secured it in place with hairpins used to keep her own crown in place.
