This court can boast of two ruling figures.
Clallam County Fair representatives announced last week there will be two queens presiding over the fair’s activities in 2021, with 2020 fair queen Anna Menkal of Port Angeles joining the newly-crowned 2021 fair queen, Rebekah Parker of Sequim.
Parker, a princess for the 2019 county fair, is a senior at Sequim High School and Olympic Peninsula Academy. Her parents are Chris and LeAnn Parker, and sponsors are Kids Kampus Preschool and Daycare, Puget Sound Transfer, Atlas Management, Inc., Sound Moving and Storage, and Seth and Cheri Esterby.
After graduation, Parker, now 17, plans to pursue a degree in early childhood development, and with a minor in multimedia.
Menkal, also 17, is a senior at Port Angeles High School. She is sponsored by Brian’s Sporting Goods; she is also sponsored by her other grandparents Mike and Zoe Hansen. Her parents are Steve and Valerie Menkal.
Menkal’s future education plans are attending Peninsula College and becoming a paramedic/EMT.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Clallam County Fair was cancelled — as were all county fairs in the state
The 2021 Clallam County Fair’s theme is “Blue Ribbon Dreams in Boots and Jeans.”
