The annual search for a King and Queen and their Royal Court to reign over the 69th Annual Camellia Festival of Temple City began on Saturday, January 12, 2013, when first grade boys and girls participated in the Royalty Play Day.

The preliminary judging was held at the Community Center at Live Oak Park under the direction of the Parks & Recreation Department of Temple City and the Camellia Festival Committee.

The first grade participants were judged on their attention span, getting along with others, following directions, general appearance, poise and personality.  Judges remain anonymous, are not Temple City residents, and do not have any connection with the City of Temple City.   The children were known only by the number they wore.  Play day is a fun time for the children as they play games, sing songs, make a craft, and have the experience of talking into a microphone.

The Royal Court members selected for the 69th Camellia Festival are:

Princess McKenna Kemper                           Cleminson Elementary School
Princess Gabriella Pedraza                            La Rosa Elementary School
Princess Samantha Womack                         Longden Elementary School
Prince Christopher Koyamatsu                     St. Luke Catholic School
Prince Lucas Cole De Paula                           Emperor Elementary School
Prince Adam Julian Zesati                             San Rafael Elementary School

Banner Carriers:

Mariah Rae Maldonado                               La Rosa Elementary School

Kaida Sakamoto                                            Emperor Elementary School

Kevin Tsai                                                       Emperor Elementary School

Zane Pinedo                                                    La Rosa Elementary School

The King and Queen will be announced at the Royalty Coronation and Reception on Friday, February 1, 2013, 7:00 pm at Live Oak Park, 10144 Bogue Street.  This event is open to the public. The Royalty Court, which includes the Banner Carriers, will visit many of the Temple City service clubs during the month of February and reign over the Camellia Festival.  Past Royalty is invited to attend.
