There were a lot of collector cars and tractors in the show that fol- lowed the parade. At 12:30 p.m. was a program that began with thanking everyone for coming out to celebrate the anni- versary.

The royalty candidates then auc- tioned off their home-made goodie baskets that each had made up, filled with a variety of breads, cook- ies, pies, jams, etc. As a group, they chose to give the money raised, $315, to the St. Cloud Humane Society. At 7 p.m., the coronation started with the 2008-2009 royalty Reana Orbeck, Katie Mackereth, and Jen- nifer Gilpatrick returning to crown the 2011-2012 royalty.
