Mini royalty


Stephanie Hagenaars

Last year’s Mini-King and Queen, Declan Scott and Brooklyn Beckett, at left, passed on their duties to five-year-old Hope McCormick and four-year-old Grayson Idrisson after the annual mini-royalty contest held during Canada Day festivities at Point Park. Each of the nine contestants answered a series of questions, including their age, their favourite activities, and the names of their pets, with a set of judges choosing the winners. McCormick and Idrisson will have the honour of donning their new apparel at parades and other special events over the next year.
