Cheers, smiles and applause filled the air, Monday night, as six candidates entertained a big crowd for the Miss Riverfest pageant.
In the end, the Miss Riverfest crown was placed on the head of Abbi Zieske of Windom, just moments after Makenna McNamara of Windom was crowned the Miss Riverfest runner-up.
Zieske is the daughter of Jessie Markus and Greg Zieske. McNamara is the daughter of Amy and Ryan McNamara.
