Broeils Crowned 'Sardine Queen'
Scenes from Sardine Festival
The 18th annual International Sardine Festival was held Friday, Oct. 8, in Aberdeen.
Frances Broeils was crowned “Sardine Queen” at today’s 18th annual International Sardine Festival held at Lake Park in Aberdeen.
A large crowd showed up for the festival that started out as a joke, but has evolved into one of the most popular annual community events in Moore County. The sardines, which are given away, ran out by noon.
This year’s festival was a tribute to the founder, Randall Moss, who died March 25. There was a moment of silence in memory of Moss.
