‘Rice and Easy’ day for visiting queens hosted by Mouton
For this year’s Queen’s Day, held Saturday, Sept. 21, 76th International Rice Festival Queen Sarah Mouton invited several visiting queens from across the state to Crowley, where they experienced a “Rice and Easy” afternoon. The girls enjoyed lunch at the LSU Rice Experiment Station before touring Falcon Rice Mill. Later in the afternoon Charlotte Jeffers took the queens on a tour of Crowley’s historic City Hall and then to the Rice Theater. The fun and educational day ended for Mouton and the visiting queens with getting ready for and attending the 2013 International Rice Festival Queen’s Ball and Honoree Cocktail held at the International Rice Festival Building. There, Mouton was honored by the Rice Festival for her dedication and participation throughout her reign.
