BOND COUNTY FAIR QUEEN TO COMPETE IN SPRINGFIELD PAGEANT
Bond County Fair Queen Nori Stone is in Springfield this weekend, competing in the Miss Illinois County Fair Pageant. Nori told WGEL she has been preparing for the pageant for a while and is excited about the competition. She had to rewrite her speech and purchase a new evening gown. When asked about the difference between the two pageants, she said going from six competitors to 71 is somewhat daunting. Her overall goal is to have fun this weekend. The Miss Illinois County Fair Pageant continues through Sunday, January 20.
