This was in honor of the Junior Queen Piper Puckett and Junior King  Jackson Edward Van Dyke, who reigned over the Court of Maifest Mysteries.’ That was the conclusion of a jubilant day on the Maifest grounds Friday.  Others dance and sang along with the Anthony Moreno Band and then Cory Morrow at the park.

At 10:30am the parade with the junior court will join the senior court of Queen Caroline Webb and King Celeb Rodenbeck, to ride in the city’s traditional parade route.  Thielemann says this gives a chance for everyone to take part in the Maifest parade.
