Kewaunee County’s Paige Bellin and Door County’s Claire Olson hope to extend their time as royalty next week when they compete for the title of Wisconsin Fairest of the Fair. Close to 40 individuals will vie for the crown through a number of different competitions during the Wisconsin Association of Fairs Convention. Similar to their role as the county’s Fairest of the Fair, the winner will travel around the state promoting August’s Wisconsin State Fair at different events. Kewaunee County Fairest of Fair Paige Bellin says picking the brain of her predecessor and former state Fairest of the Fair Isabella Haen has been helpful in her preparation.
Claire Olson will be breaking new ground as the first-ever Door County Fairest of Fair to compete for the title. She is excited about the experience and meeting the other contestants.
Taking place in Wisconsin Dells, Bellin and Olson will find out if they are the next Wisconsin Fairest of the Fair on January 8th.
