Racing toward royalty

The Emo Fair Queen contestants enjoyed a night at the races recently. They got together with last year’s winners and headed on the track to get up close with the cars of the Emo Speedway. The race toward the crowning is heating up, as the four contestants get ready for the final two events — the parade float competition and talent night. The public is welcome to attend the talent show and crowning, which will- take place Thursday night at 7 p.m., upstairs in the Arena. Admission is $2 per person.
