Four area high school juniors were chosen recently as the new King, Queen, Prince, and Princess of the 2015 Barnum Festival during the King and Queen Coronation Ball held at the Bridgeport Holiday Inn. The Royal Court will play a key role in the 67th Barnum Festival, the annual salute to the life and achievements of P.T. Barnum — showman, entrepreneur and philanthropist, and former mayor of Bridgeport.
The King and Queen competition is sponsored by Bridgeport Hospital. A donation from the Ernest and Joan Trefz Foundation will provide scholarships to the Royal Court.
