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.
