Sara Gowdy is officially royalty, beginning her reign this weekend.

The Rosemont Ridge Middle School student was crowned queen at the 55th Annual West Linn Old Time Fair tonight in Willamette Park. The fair takes place through Sunday, July 17, and also features three princesses from Athey Creek Middle School: Emma Waibel, Ellie Jones and Lauren Huttula to help with the various activities.

In tonight's coronation ceremony, a skydiver arrived at West Linn's Willamette Park holding the fair court winner's name.

Leading up to tonight, the girls have participated in various community activities such as appearances in the Oregon City Pioneer Days Teddy Bear Parade, Portland's Rose Festival Starlight Parade the West Linn's Daddy Daughter Dance.

Enjoy the fair's food, music, baseball game, rides and much more. And don't forget to attend the annual parade tomorrow at 10 a.m. on Willamette Falls Drive in West Linn where Gowdy will make another appearance.
