17-year-old Kathryn Weiss is the new queen of the Punkin Vine Fair in Newton County. The daughter of Kyle and Karen Weiss of Brook was crowned Monday night. Kathruyn follows up a tradition in that her sister was the fair queen in 2011.
The pageant, aired on 94.1 WGFA, was moved to the Trinity United Methodist Church in Kentland due to threatening weather.
First runnerup was Michela Rieck of Kentland. Mackenzie Varnado of Morocco was named 2nd runnerup. Miss Teen and Miss Congeniality was Chyenne Deno of Brook.
The Cole Swindell Concert is the fair highlight for Tuesday evening.
