THE crowning took place at the weekend of the two children who will lead the opening ceremony at Sandy Festival on June 21.
Sixteen children lined up for the judges at Robert Peel Lower School on Saturday to find this year's festival prince and princess.
And after careful consideration by the panel of judges Chloe Barton, aged nine, and Shea Smith-Peyton, eight, were chosen to head the festival through the town's streets in a Rolls-Royce.
At Christmas they will team up again and turn on the town's festive lights.
"This was the most children we have ever had enter the competition," said festival committee member and organiser Hayley Stewart.
This year the festival procession of floats will start on their tour of the town from Western Way and finish in the grounds of Sandye Place Middle School where there will be stalls and other events.
