The Mason County Forest Festival court was crowned Saturday at Gateway Christian Fellowship in Shelton.

Gabriela Lepe is the new Queen of the Forest, and Joshua Brennan is Paul Bunyan. Shawna Lacy is Princess of Cedar, Nevaeh Haskins is Princess of Hemlock and Bradley Haskins Jr. is Timber the Axe Man.

The court members will represent the community while riding on a float in the parades of regional festivals, such as Fathoms O'Fun in Port Orchard. They will make their hometown debut during Forest Festival activities June 2 to 5.

"Back to Our Roots!" is the theme of the 78th Forest Festival. The events include the Paul Bunyan Grand Parade at 11 a.m. June 4 in downtown Shelton, the logging show June 4 at Loop Field, and the 2022 Car Show Off from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 5 on Olympic Highway North. The carnival will be hosted June 2-5 at a downtown Shelton location to be named later.
