MILTON - There's new royalty in Milton.

Three pageants, featuring a number of talented young ladies, were highlighted events during the first weekend of the 33rd annual Milton Harvest Festival.

On Saturday evening, Alyssa Williams was crowned Harvest Festival Princess.

As part of the competition, the five finalists for the crown were asked what about Milton would they would like to see posted on a sign along Interstate 80 and why. Each young lady answered with a smile, and drew rousing applause from members of the audience, who appeared to be enjoying the festivities as much as the contestants.

"Milton, Pa., where people come together," Williams answered. "Milton is a place with a lot of diversity, where people come together and they each bring something to the town."

Williams is the daughter of Dale and Victoria Williams, and was sponsored by the Milton Rotary Club. She is a member of the Milton Area High School Class of 2010 and is involved in band, concert choir, PYEA, show choir, PMEA band festivals, drama club, National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society and spring musical.

MILTON - Milton coach Mike Bergey couldn't remember the last time his team had won the Tomato Bowl and senior Bobby Turnbaugh blinked when he heard that he rushed 172 yards. It was that kind of a night for the Black Panthers as they improved to .500 with a 46-8 trouncing of Warrior Run Friday night at Alumni Field.

MILTON - A recent revival in the Milton Harvest Festival is continuing to create a lot of noise.

Next Saturday, Sept. 19, will already be the third year in the return of the festival's Tournament of Bands. It's nearly tripled in size in just this short time.

Brett Hosterman, chairman and Milton Area High School band director, said "We've proven we've run a good show."

The first year of competition, in recent times, brought out six bands. The second year fetched a dozen, and this year 17 have registered.

As far as marching band competition is concerned, next weekend will be the start of a new season for many bands.
