The 13 candidates seeking to become the new Cavalcade Queen pose for a picture during orientation on Tuesday. Pictured near the center (wearing banner and decorated hat) is the current Cavalcade Queen, Kelcee Dickman, who won the 2013-14 title at last year’s event. To Dickman’s immediate right is a former queen, Eusty Barbee, who now serves as director of the Cavalcade Queen contest, and next on the right is the reigning Queen of the Pawhuska Roundup Club, Cheniaya King, who serves as the Cavalcade co-hostess.
