Bockfest searches for sausage queen

by Roger Seay - email

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Bockfest is searching for the woman who most exemplifies Cincinnati's brewing tradition to be Sausage Queen.  The competition is sponsored by the Bockfest Festival and Christian Moerlein Brewing Company's Little Kings Beer.  They say "It's Good To Be King. And Sausage Queen too!"

The Bohemian Bockfest Parade includes the "Sausage Queen" – Bockfest royalty who carries a ceremonial tray of bockwurst sausage. The Queen is crowned during Bockfest after a series of four, pre-Bockfest preliminary pageant rounds. Sausage Queen 2010 will carry the tray of bockwurst in this year's parade, accompanied by a court of contestants.
The Queen will be required to attend events Friday and Saturday evenings.

They are looking for someone who fills the following qualifications:

To enter the Little King's Sausage Queen Competition please show up ready and willing to fit the status and criteria of Sausage Queen…
 A panel of "expert" judges will determine the best applicant based on the following criteria.  
1. Personality: Good traits will include a love of bock beer, a sense of humor. The personality round will involve a series of questions posed to the contestants by the judges.
2. Presence: The contestant must look good in the bohemian spirit carrying a tray of sausages. The presence round will involve a very short catwalk turn while carrying a tray of bockwurst.
3. Talent: Whatever "talent" you think a Sausage Queen should possess is good enough for us.
