The annual search for the Royal Court for the 70th Annual Temple City Camellia Festival took place on Saturday, January 11, 2014, when first grade boys and girls participated in the Royalty Play Day Contest at the Live Oak Park Community Center under the direction of the Temple City Parks & Recreation and Camellia Festival Committee.
Participants were judged on the following criteria: attention span, how they interacted with other first grade children, following directions, general appearance, poise and personality. The Judges were not Temple City residents nor do they have any connection with the City of Temple City. The children were known to the Judges only by the number they wore. The Play Day Royalty Contest is designed to be a fun experience for the children during which they play games, sing songs, make a craft, and have the experience of talking into a microphone.
The King and Queen will be announced at the Royalty Coronation and Reception which will be held on Friday, January 31, 2014 at 7:00 pm at Live Oak Park located at 10144 Bogue Street. The public is invited to attend this event as well as past Royalty.
The duties of the Royal Court and Banner Carriers includes visits to Temple City service clubs, event appearances, and of course, reigning over the 70th Camellia Festival which will take place February 21, 22 & 23, 2014.
