Sack it to 'em

Yambilee invites Visiting Royals from other festivals to a Queen’s Luncheon, where the outgoing Yambilee Queen is honored and her would-be successors are introduced. To recognize the Yam industry, the Visiting Queens are asked to make burlap sack outfits that reflect their own festival themes. The Delcambre Shrimp, Strawberry, and Cotton queens show their stuff. (Strawberry, too often called Watermelon this day, would like you to know that Watermelon seeds are black.)
