Getting the Opportunity to be a Princess for the Day

Most of us have a person or a group of people we look up to.

At the Wisconsin Valley Fair, dozens of kids got the chance to meet some of their role models at Tea with the Princess.

"I'm having tea and cookies with the princess," says Elaine.

"We get to meet them and make our own sashes and stuff," says Erica.

And of course, tiaras.

It's all part of the 2010 Tea with the Princess event at the Wisconsin Valley Fair.

A chance for kids of all ages to meet fairest of the fair winners.

"It makes them feel special, to really feel like a princess and meet real princesses, they're ecstatic," says Melissa Matthiae, the 2010 Fairest of the Fair.

"They definitely see, oh I can be a princess someday," says Sara Kaiser, the 2007 Fairest of the Fair.

And the kids all agree.

"I feel like they're really good role models," says Elaine, "I wanna be a role model to others."

"I get to wear dresses," says Erica.

It's an opportunity that isn't out of reach for any child.

"They're going to grow up and love their experiences at the fair so much and they're going to want to be here all day and all week," says Kaiser.

"Shoot for your dreams, and if you want to do it, go for it," says Matthiae.
