Bucknill crowned Junior Queen of fair

NEWBURY — Seven year-old Julianna Bucknill was crowned the 2013 Topsfield Fair’s Junior Queen on Saturday at the annual Junior King and Queen Pageant.

Every year the Topsfield Fair hosts a pageant for children between the ages of 5 and 8 years old to become the Junior King and Queen and serve as a representative of the fair at local parades and other events throughout the year.

The contestants, who are asked to dress casually, are interviewed on stage and judged according to general appearance, conduct and personality.

According to her mother, Margaret Bucknill, Julianna loves school, learning new things, reading and writing.

“Julianna loves to dance and she is currently the youngest member of the North Shore Performing Arts Dance Company where she has competed in two competitions and won two high gold awards and finished third overall in her category,” her mother wrote.

Bucknill, and Junior King Christopher Burns Jr. of Beverly, each received a trophy and a new bike as the winners of the pageant.
