Every year Spokane celebrates the Lilac Festival with the Torchlight Parade in May. One of the biggest parts of the parade is the Royal Court. The Court consists of 4 Princesses and 1 Queen, all High School Seniors, who are all outstanding citizens, with excellent GPAs, and just exceptional people.
The process to becoming a member of the Royal Court is not an easy one. For many girls in Spokane it is a life long dream to be on the Royal float through the parade. I know I always dreamed about being one of those Princesses! Unfortunately, for me home school students are not eligible.
Just this last week the Fab 14 were announced, what is the Fab 14 you may ask? The Fab 14 is one Senior from each of the Local High Schools. It is the last step before Royal Court announcement.
I’m proud to say 2 of the Seniors I photographed this summer- Bethany Hand and Linnea Kessler made it into the Fab 14! I am so excited for them as they get one step closer to realizing their dream of being members of the Royal Court of the Lilac Festival! Congratulations Girls!!!
