GALLIPOLIS — Not a drop of rain touched the stage this year as the 2014 River Recreation Festival Queen was crowned Thursday night during the 2014 River Recreation Festival.

After the Queen’s Parade, and the Opening Ceremony and the Junior Miss Pageant, the five contestants took the stage and answered questions about their interests, hopes and pursuits beyond high school.

Maddison Siders, 17, was crowned as the River Recreation Festival Queen for 2014, with Allison McClure named First Runner up. The other three contestants were Alexandra Elliott, Lexie Johnson and Jerica Young.

More information on this year’s 2014 River Recreation Festival, including the results from this year’s Junior Miss Pageant, will be included in the Sunday’s Times Sentinel.
