Benton County Fair & Rodeo Queen & Philomath Frolic & Rodeo Queen Coronation
~ February 2nd ~
"This year as the 2018 Benton County Fair & Rodeo Queen has been one to remember. I can remember going to the first rodeo of the season up in Spray and being so nervous but excited. Over the last year, I have gotten to travel all around Oregon, going to coronations, rodeos, parades, and so much more! I have gotten to meet a lot of amazing people this year and of course my sash sister! My rodeo, though, will always be my favorite!" ~ 2018 Benton County Fair & Rodeo Queen Breeana Denue
