Brett Conger and Jennifer Holster were officially crowned as Royal King and Queen of the 66th Annual Camellia Festival of Temple City on Friday evening at the Community Center at Live Oak Park.

The announcement was made by Carole Rodenbucher, General Chairperson of the 2010 Camellia Festival.

These first graders were chosen from a group of children that participated in our annual Play Day.

The Royal Court will reign over the 2010 Camellia Festival, February 26th through 28th and will ride in the parade on February 27th along Las Tunas Drive on a special float build just for them.

The Banner Carriers helped Kevin Vine, this year’s theme winner announce the theme for this year’s event “Family Fun”.

Passing on their crowns and capes at the Coronation Ceremony were last year’s Camellia Festival King Matthew Lopez and Queen Natalie Castro-Figueroa.
