It’s that time of year again, as six young women competing for the title of Lions Queen get ready for the 69th annual Carlinville Lions Carnival Friday, Sept. 6-7 in downtown Carlinville.

The six ladies were picked by the Carlinville High School junior class as queen candidates. All summer, they young women are out selling tickets and raising money, which is then donated by the Lions Club to various local charities.

The last night of the carnival, the queen candidate who sold the most tickets will be crowned Lions Queen.
