Visit to Benson with Princess Emma Grace

This past weekend, I was able to attend the Benson Mule Days Parade!
I rode in style thanks to Capital Ford of Wilmington, who donated a red convertible!
Once my dad and I got to the parade, I pinned my crown on single-handedly, (which was not an easy feat), and waited in the lineup for the parade to begin. As I rode through the parade route, I got to say hello and wave to the lovely people of Benson, NC. I saw so many kind spirits and big smiles along the route and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole ride. The weather couldn’t have been more beautiful, which definitely made the Mule Days Parade one to remember! I hope to be back soon, Benson!
