18 Ways "Long Way" Relates To Every Festival And Fair King And Queen

18 Ways "Long Way" Relates To Every Festival And Fair King And Queen

Being royalty is like joining a whole new world, but this really wraps it up.

Being a festival or fair queen (or king) is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and it is one of the coolest experiences a person could ever have. You not only get to represent your festival or fair during its time, but you also get to travel around and tell everyone about where you come from. Listen to Brett Eldredge's new song, Long Way. If you have not heard the song, check it out here! It is obvious about us, past and present queens and kings.

1. Our town is our pride and joy.

We do take people that are special around our town- because current or has-beens it's our town, our community, it’s our home.

2. We know everything about the town. We can tell you everything that's happened lately.

My town of Ashville had the first traffic light! We also know all of the latest news! Down to what community service is going on.

3. Our festival is known for something special, and you bet your bottom dollar we know it and love it.

Ashville, Ohio's festival is known for the fish as big as your hand and spectacular fireworks on the 4th! Right south of us, Circleville is known for their pumpkins and Pumpkin Show.

4. Our town is special to us.

Not only can we tell you about the town, we have memories on nearly every street corner. Our good memories come from here!

5. The line clearly states 'where you the queen with the silver crown.'

Heck yes! I was proud to represent my community! All of us are

6. We always come back.

It doesn't matter where we go in life, home is where our festival is

7. Our town and community made us who we are today.

Our town shaped up. Our community molded us into the person we are. It taught us our values and helped shaped our beliefs.

8. We have the shine, it shows most of the time.

“The shine underneath of the diamond I think I just found.” You really can’t find a better song lyric to describe our personalities. With that, we do wear a lot of shine on our heads with our crowns.

9. We can make anyone fall in love with our town, and festival.

Even if they have never been, we have that amazing ability.

10. We have our faults and glories

We do not let them hold us down, or even make us arrogant. Everything that we have failed, and succeeded at has made us who we are today.

11. We have some of our own secrets, especially when it comes to the ins and the outs of our reigns!

We can always tell you the best foods at our festivals, but what we won’t tell you is how much of it we ate at one time! Trust me, it’s enough to make your stomach sick. From fried bologna, kettle corn, pork on a stick, sweet corn all the way to maple stirs. We know it all, way too well.

We also know the best secretive spots in our town that if you’re not a local you don’t know! We know our community like the back of our hand, so we know all the beautiful things it has to offer.

Did I mention? We LOVE food?

12. We are our own type of pretty.

Everyone on a court is special, being pretty is not all about the looks. It is our personalities! A huge perk for us, we know a thing or two about hair and dressed!

13. If our parents didn’t meet at our festival or fair, there is a good chance they went on a date there!

Hometowns and communities run deep.

14. The whole time we are on this long ride, we are going to be telling you all about something that happened in that spot with one of our queen friends or maybe just telling you about every girl.

We have so many fun stories.

15. The lyric states, ‘You got a look that says you got it all together.’

When we are queens, we are the role models for young kids, especially girls. It is often we get asked what Disney princess we know. There can be a little girl or boy who is walking around with their parents and be upset, usually, when they see a girl with a crown on her head, they cheer up.

ALL the time we stop and take pictures with children, and even teenagers and adults! Children are always watching, so everything we do as queens is things that they pick up on. I have met many girls who were even just a couple years younger than me and they said they went out for the title. Seeing and talking to children is one of the most rewarding parts

16. This song describes why we wanted to run for royalty.

Our town is special to us, it is where we grew up and have lived our lives! We want others to know that it is special. Different festivals and even fairs are known for something.

17. The song is all about perfect timing.

It opens with talking about the right time. For us, during our contests, we did the right thing at the right time. Many of us had to answer fishbowl type questions, this means that we had to be able to think on our feet of how to answer them. Usually, we answer a question pertaining to what we are going out for, so it is all about having the right answer at the right time.

18. Being royalty can run deep in a family.

My Grandma was a festival queen (her picture is from when she was invited back to ride, and I left the year off so everyone remembers she is young), my Mom was a Jr Miss and the Miss of her local town, I was the queen of my town and fair and now my little brother is fair king! Royalty runs through our veins. So many girls and their siblings are also involved in the queening (and kinging)!

There is a nice little resemblance between all of us!

There are actually three siblings in this post!

To all of the girls that I traveled with, fair and festival, thank you for one amazing year. Also, thank you for all jumping on and sending me your pictures! I could not let the post go without everyone, so below is the rest of my amazing queen and king friends. This song represents all of us, I couldn't let you go unnoticed.

How Science Fiction Movies are Preparing People to Face Great Changes

Science Fiction Movies

Mankind is overwhelmed by the amazing and mind-blowing inventions that it has witnessed in the last century alone. And rightly so! The way humans used to live, has entirely been revolutionized by the technology and has completely changed our lifestyles. With inventions and amenities like Internet, Smartphones, telescopes and advances in Astronomy and all the fancy gadgets that are invented, the world seems to be just a tiny dot in the MASSIVE universe that we are living in. 

Technology and Human Intelligence

Astronomical studies have revealed to us where we are existing in the crowd on unbelievably huge galaxies and solar systems. So much so, that we are totally boggled by how amazing and huge the Universe is, and we are fully aware of how minor our existence is. But the BRAINS that we are blessed with as humans, do not make us tiny at all. It is our very brains and intelligence, that we have managed to invent so much out of nothing and discovered things inside the planets that are light-years away from us. This foresightedness has helped us as humans grow and accept greater changes in the world as well as the universe.

Said that, we owe a lot to the media for developing the psyche of humans of this contemporary age to accept the mind-blowing changes that technology has brought into our lives. With so many movies based on science-fiction, super-human qualities, artificial intelligence and so many other technology-related topics, have opened up a new avenue for the mankind to look forward to. And unconsciously and sub-coconsciously, all these amazing movies are preparing us to accept the larger changes and bigger inventions that are in queue to astonish us further. 

Science-Fiction Movies

If you are not aware of this fact then let us enlighten you, science-fiction is the one of the most-watched entertainment genre in the United States. The brains in the Hollywood deserve all the praise in the world for bringing unbelievable, yet logical ideas in technology, future, space and life, that one day, mankind may find. Then genius ideas and logics that they show in the movies are plausible and should be given the credit for the perfection. Let’s discuss some of the best and recent Science-fiction movies, in the perspective of the amazing ideas and technology that they have presented. And just if you want to catch all these movies in crisp HD, check out Mediacom TV.


They very starship Avalon that carried 5,000 colonists in the movie was utter perfection, which is exactly why we have mentioned this movie. The spaceship was fully-equipped with all the possible luxuries that one could imagine. It even had different menu options, enough fuel, a swimming pool that is enabled to hold the water with gravity as well, and even had an active bar. The pods designed for human hibernation were also amazing. The ship was automatically operated and the very idea of a successful space journey for like 120 mighty years was a remarkable idea. 

By the end of it, the protagonists even manage to grow plantation on the space ship. What an amazing imagination, making us think and expect so much from the future.


The very science of Interstellar is still a mystery for so many people. It was a movie for the most intelligent people out there. But we have it on our list because it very much pertains to the topic that we are discussing. The very idea of making an interstellar migration was presented and that too with the most logical justifications. The idea seemed very far-flung and improbable until we watched this movie. The imagery of the planets that the astronauts set their foot on was also very creative and praise-worthy. 

By the end of it, the craving to actually reach another planet was made so real that we literally felt like we are about to move to another planet right away.


This is a movie of a slightly different league from the ones that are aforementioned. The reason why we picked this, is because of the fact that this piece is about how mankind is becoming ready to face and accept new and advanced changes. Lucy totally fits into this. 

The idea of getting super-human qualities and mind-blowing mental capabilities, through absorbing a particular chemical in the protagonist’s system, was amazing. The exceptional mind powers included telepathy and telekinesis. Although, we are not sure that such things can happen or not, but we would very much like to think that they can. That will open an entire new avenue about what a human brain is capable of.

Alien: Covenant & Life

The recurrent idea of having fellow beings, aliens and other life forms on different planets has been in the movies for so long. And NASA and other space research centers have been trying to find any trait of life on every possible planet that they could reach, for so long. However, the aforementioned movies have best depicted chances and forms of aliens that we as audience ever witnessed. Especially, the creature in Life has an intelligence and powers of a whole new level. So much so, that the whole planet Earth is under a genuine threat because of this SINGLE creature.
