A young woman from St. Peter is this year’s Princess Kay of the Milky Way.
Nineteen-year-old Emily Annexstad was crowned the 64th Princess Kay of the Milky Way in a ceremony at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on Wednesday night.
Representing Nicollet County, Annexstad is the daughter of Rolf and Jean Annexstad and attends the University of Minnesota. She is pursuing degrees in animal science and agricultural communications and marketing.
Annexstad’s first official duty as Princess Kay will come today (Thursday) as she sits in a rotating cooler in the Dairy Building at the State Fair for nearly six hours to have her likeness sculpted in a 90-pound block of butter.
