Were you ‘Seen’ at the NRF King Reveal?
The reign of King Neches LXXI began as Judge Keith Fredrick Giblin was crowned as this year’s Neches River Festival monarch at the Event Centre on Tuesday night.
The king was welcomed by the festival court, past royalty and the community, with a light supper served for high school participants.
Starting in May 1949, the Neches River Festival has been an annual event in downtown Beaumont, celebrating the “royalty” of the city and all it has to offer.
Information about the festival parade and other events in the following weeks is available at nechesriverfestival.com/20182019-dates.
