Had such a great time visiting my hometown fair yesterday. I even got to drive around with Queen Ellie in her side by side!! She also let me hang out in her nice AC camper to cool down… considering it was 100 degrees yesterday, we needed it a few times!😂 Glad I got to see some animals, eat some fair food, watch tractor pulls, see some friends, and have a good time with Garrah, Ellie, their mommas.. and see my favorite, Christy! ❤️

WV Freedom Festival
“Welcome to Logan.. the friendliest town in West Virginia” The city of Logan truly lived up to this quote. I can not thank the people of Logan enough for making me feel so special.

I am so honored to have been a part of the 20th West Virginia Freedom Festival. Thank you for providing me with so many memories I will never forget, and allowing me to be apart of your “City of Logan film”. 💙

Thank you to the Mayor, the city council, Amber Miller Viars , and Anna Butcher for being so kind, and providing me with so many goodies to go home with. ✨ Check out this dress Amber so kindly gave me. Notice anything special about it? I can’t wait to take on West Virginia in my new, special “West Virginia dress” 💙💛. This dress meant so much to me. Thank you Geraniums Boutique owners for designing such an awesome dress!

I was also honored enough to ride on a 1961 Vietnam helicopter flown by Mike, a Vietnam veteran. This was an experience I will never forget, and I am very lucky my dad was able to enjoy this ride with me. I loved every minute of my visit in Logan, and I can’t wait to go back! #WVAFF #wvaffqueen
