Princesses

We started selecting Princesses to represent the Hungarian Hall in 1978.  There were often 1 or 2 runner ups and the final crowning was done at the Welland Heritage Council’s Folklore Festival Coronation Ball.   Most of the princesses held a 1 year term, but on some occasions, a princess would be reselected for more than 1 year.  As the young girls of the community started to have families of their own, we started including young men as candidates. These young people would represent us for the year of their term at various functions throughout the city.  If they couldn’t attend an event, we had representatives who would step in and attend on their behalf for the Hungarian Community.
