West Virginia Strawberry Festival crowns King and Queen

BUCKHANNON, W. Va. (WDTV) - The West Virginia Strawberry has a new King and Queen.

Cayton Carder and Charlotte Bellotte were crowned as royalty for this year's festival. The ceremony took place at the West Virginia Wesleyan College Wesley Chapel.

The stage was filled from the young junior royalty court, all the way to local officials. The crowd stood up as both the King and Queen walked up, before taking their oaths of duty.

The night ended with blessings and presentation of the berries.

The grand feature parade is set for this Saturday, May 19, where we will have live coverage for you on WDTV at 1 p.m.
